How does the resolution of a specimen's image viewed under a compound light microscope compare to that of a scanning electron microscope?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Will medal (:

OpenStudy (anonymous):

is this multiple choice or a written response

OpenStudy (anonymous):

multiple choice a. The resolution of the image depends on the specimen being viewed, not on the microscope being used. b. A scanning electron microscope provides much better resolution than a compound light microscope. c. A compound light microscope provides much better resolution than a scanning electron microscope. d. The resolution is the same using either microscope; the microscopes differ only in magnification power.

k sry im watchin my baby brother. give me a sec and ill have an answer for yah

OpenStudy (anonymous):

okay thanks (:

OpenStudy (anonymous):

resolution depends on the wavelength of the light, the smaller the wavelength the higher the resolution. An electron microscope, although having a higher resolution, damages the cell. A light microscope having a lesser wavelenghth have lower resolution, you can relate this to the answer ;D

OpenStudy (anonymous):

from another person responding to the same question

OpenStudy (anonymous):

in the answer choices it says nothing about wavelength. I saw that post too but i was confused.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ah ok ill research for you then are you in FLVS?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Thanks and yes.

what module and subject

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Module 1 and it's the module exam

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what subject?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I thought the SEM provided better resolution, as it allows examination of much smaller objects.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

biology

OpenStudy (anonymous):

@douglaswinslowcooper so the answer is B?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

it is B

OpenStudy (anonymous):

:]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Thank you (:

OpenStudy (anonymous):

B !

OpenStudy (anonymous):

aw no medal ? T,T

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i will . lol
