Homework Help: Microscope with CCD camera

  1. Nov 2, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A CCD camera with 1024x768 pixels with a pixel pitch of 6 micrometres is positioned at the primary image of a microscope with a x60 objective and a 160mm tube length. The resultant image is viewed on a video monitor with a diagonal size of 43cm and an aspect ratio of 4:3. When this monitor is viewed at a 1m distance, what is the effective magnification?

    2. Relevant equations

    Magnification = - T/f
    (T= tube length, f= focal length)

    (1/f)=(1/v) +(1/u)
    (v=image distance, u=object distance from lens)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Not really sure where to start with this one. Can someone help?
