Problem: The focal length of the eyepiece is 5 cm and the magnification of the objective lens is 60x. The observer's eye is adapted to the near point of 25 cm, with the eye being 2 cm behind the eyepiece. Calculate the distance between the intermediate image (that appears between objective and the eyepiece) and the eyepiece lens. What is the total magnification of the microscope?
