(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. Your task in physics laboratory is to make a microscope from two lenses. One lens has a focal length of 2.8 cm, the other 1.1 cm. You plan to use the more powerful lens as the objective, and you want the eyepiece to be 15 cm from the objective.

What is the magnification of your microscope?

2. Thin lens equation

M_obj = -s'/s

M_eye = ???

3. In part one I solved for s, and s = 1.2cm. The more powerful lens is the one with f = 1.1, and s' = 13.2. Thus, the magnification of the objective lens should be -s'/s = -13.2/1.2 = -11. Is that correct? Also, what do I sue for the magnification of the eye? I know that I have to mutiply those two values to obtain my final answer.
