Microscopes work on the principal of magnification l.jpg

Microscopes Work on the Principal of Magnification

  • Looking through crystals and raindrops taught people about magnification.

  • Microscopes contain convex lenses, which magnify objects.

Anton Von Leeuvenhoek

  • Lived during 17th century

  • First man to make and use microscope

  • His microscope magnified 270x and looked like this:

Robert Hooke

A-Z Microscope Welcomes You!

Hooke wanted to know what something living looked like when it was strongly magnified. Since he knew that he would need to cut a really thin layer to view through his microscope, he chose to view a piece of easily-sliced cork tree…
