Is a 3-Dimensional
View Possible?
3. Why is it not possible to perform dissection under a compound microscope? The focus is too high and the stage is too small

4. Why would a compound microscope be useful to a:

a) bacteriologist?
They use these devices to identify the specific types of bacteria

b) forensic scientist?
They view tiny specimen of evidence under the microscope which include skin cells, hair, soil, ink, etc...

c) oncologist?
To search for canerous cells

5. Why would a dissecting microscope be useful to a:

a) jeweler?
To test the authenticity of his precious stones

b) archaeologist?
To use while view artifacts such as bones and fossils, perhaps even when dusting them off

c) field botanist?
they use the microscope for viewing plants parts and identifying the different species

The focus is too high causing the image to be via the center of the letter "o"

7. Today, you viewed both plant and animal cells using the compound microscope. If you were given a slide of cells that could possibly be from either plants or animals, what characteristics would you use to classify...
