How does the resolution of a specimen's image viewed under a compound light microscope compare to that of a scanning electron microscope?
Will medal (:
is this multiple choice or a written response
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
okay thanks (:
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
from another person responding to the same question
in the answer choices it says nothing about wavelength. I saw that post too but i was confused.
ah ok ill research for you then are you in FLVS?
Thanks and yes.
what module and subject
Module 1 and it's the module exam
I thought the SEM provided better resolution, as it allows examination of much smaller objects.
@douglaswinslowcooper so the answer is B?
it is B
Thank you (:
aw no medal ? T,T
i will . lol
