Flashcards in 3.2.1.6 - Cell Calculations and AIM Triangle Deck (18):
1

Identify what is missing from the unit conversion diagram.

2

How do we calculate the miagnificaiton of an image?

Magnification = Image Size ÷ Actual Size

3

1 m in µm =

1 x 106 µm

4

What can we use to help rearrange the equations for calculating image size, actual size and magnificaiton?

5

Identify what is missing from the unit conversion diagram.

6

How should you calculate magnificaiton if there is a 'scale bar' present on a photomicrograph?

You are given the Actual Size next to the scale bar

Measure the Image Size using a ruler

Magnificaiton = Image Size ÷ Actual Size

7

1 nm in m =

1 x 10-9 m

8

1 m in nm =

1 x 109 nm

9

Identify what is missing from the unit conversion diagram.

10

1 µm in m =

1 x 10-6 m

11

Identify what is missing from the unit conversion diagram.

12

1 mm in m =

1 x 10-3 m

13

How can we calculate the size of the image being observed through microscope?

Image Size = Actual Size x Magnification

14

When doing cell calculation you should make sure that you are working in which units?

Micrometres

15

Identify what is missing from the unit conversion diagram.

16

Identify what is missing from the unit conversion diagram.

17

1 m in mm = 

1x103 mm

18

How do we calculate the actual size of an image observed through a microscope?

Actual Size = Image Size ÷ Magnification
