# Problem: An amoeba is 0.305 cm away from the 0.300 cm- focal length objective lens of a microscope.(a) An eyepiece with a 2.00-cm focal length is placed 20.0 cm from the objective. Where is the final image?(b) What angular magnification is produced by the eyepiece?(c) Suppose the objective lens of the microscope had a magnification of - 60 before placing the eyepiece from the objective, what is the overall magnification?

Lens equation:

$\overline{)\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbit{s}}_{\mathbit{o}}}{\mathbf{+}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbit{s}}_{\mathbit{i}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbit{f}}}$

Magnification:

$\overline{){\mathbf{m}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{h}}_{\mathbf{i}}}{{\mathbf{h}}_{\mathbf{o}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{-}}\frac{{\mathbf{s}}_{\mathbf{i}}}{{\mathbf{s}}_{\mathbf{o}}}}$

(a)

The object distance so from the objective lens will be:

soe = 20 - 18.30 = 1.7 cm
