Focal length

  • #1
Can someone tell me what sort of equation I would use for this question, I can't use the magnification as I have two unknowns. At least I don't know how to apply the magnification equation to this question.

A microscope is made in a tube 25.0cm long. It magnifies 5.00 x 10 to the 2 times, 50.0 times by the objective lens and 10 times by the eyepiece. What is the focal length of the two lenses?

What do you need to get greater magnification, a wider objective lens? :bugeye:

magnification is given by the eq. M = -q / p

see if that helps
