Problem 36.5: Microscope
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
Two lenses, an eyepiece and an objective are used to make a microscope (position is given in centimeters and angle is given in degrees). You may focus the microscope by click-dragging the object into position. Restart. Where should the object be placed for optimal viewing by a relaxed eye?
