Compare and contrast the structure and function of a compound light microscope and a scanning electron microscope. Be sure to discuss the structure and function of each as well as the function and usefulness of each when examining a specimen.

Similarities between all different types of microscope that uses to view the unseen living organism materials and the cells, and differences between all types of microscopes that we can not see both living organism and cell in the all types of microscope, both living organism and cell are seen by different types of microscopes . For example –Compound light microscopes can magnify up to around 1500 times One major advantage of using this type of microscope is that you can view living organisms or living material. To determine the total magnification, of the two lenses multiply the power of the eyepiece by the power of the objective Example, eyepiece lens is 10X (magnifies 10 times) the low power lens is 10X the total magnification is 10 x 10 = 100X or 100 times magnification. And the Electron microscopes are more powerful and much larger than a compound light microscope. Electron microscopes use a beam of electrons and magnetic fields to produce an image of the object, which is then displayed on a computer screen. It is with electron microscopes that scientists can study a cell right down to the atomic and molecular level. Please note, however, because of the way the specimens must be prepared, most electron microscopes can not be used to view living organisms or tissues.
