What is the total magnification of an object observed using a microscope with a 10x ocular and a 40x objective?

Magnification Total Magnification
Scanning 4x 40x
Low Power 10x 100x
High Power 40x 400x
Oil Immersion 100x 1000x

What is the correct magnification of a microscope with a 10x ocular and a 10x objective lens?

The objective and ocular lenses are responsible for magnifying the image of the specimen being viewed. So for 10X objective and 10X ocular, Total magnification = 10 X 10 = 100X (this means that the image being viewed will appear to be 100 times its actual size).

What is the total magnification of a specimen viewed with a 10x ocular lens and a 40x objective lens?

High Power Objective Lens (40x) The total magnification of a high-power objective lens combined with a 10x eyepiece is equal to 400x magnification, giving you a very detailed picture of the specimen in your slide.

When the power of ocular lens is 10x and objective lens is 20x the magnification is?

200x

How do you kill a Tardigrade?

It took heating to 82.7 °C (180.9 °F) to kill half of tun-state tardigrades within 1 hour. Longer exposure time decreased the temperature needed for lethality, though. For 24 hours of exposure, 63.1 °C (145.6 °F) was enough to kill half of the tun-state tardigrades.

Where can Tardigrades be found?

All Tardigrades are considered aquatic because they need water around their bodies to permit gas exchange as well as to prevent uncontrolled desiccation. They can most easily be found living in a film of water on lichens and mosses, as well as in sand dunes, soil, sediments, and leaf litter.

Do tardigrades have eyes?

Tardigrades — which grow up to a millimeter in length — swim with four sets of stubby legs that appear much too small for their bodies. Tardigrades can move their heads independent of their bodies, and some species have eyes. When you look at them under the microscope, they stare straight back, unfazed by humans.

What are Tardigrades purpose?

Tardigrades are nature’s pioneers, colonizing new, potentially harsh environments, providing food for larger creatures that follow. Scientists say, for instance, that tardigrades may have been among the first animals to leave the ocean and settle on dry land. Tardigrades pose no threat to humans.
