By knowing the diameter of the field of view and having an estimate of the number of cells that would fit across the diameter, you can determine the size of a cell by dividing the diameter by the number of cells. For example: The diameter of the field of view under 100 total magnification is about 1.5 mm. If there are 10 cells that would fit across the diameter, one cell would be 0.15mm. The diameter of the field of view under 400 total magnification is approximately 0.375 mm.
aha, this is on yahoo answers, but if I need to solve it by the measurements of the cell, and the diameter fov, how would I calculate that?
would that rule still apply, say under low power to high?

yea I had to rush this :P
Yes the rule applies to low or high
so if asked to magnify to one cell, I'll just divide the cell (which is one) and then by the d fov?
right!
ok thanks!
your welcome!
