What will happen to the field of view for each resultant magnification as you change objectives from 4ϫ to 10ϫ to 43ϫ? 12. Using your 4ϫ objective, you measure the diameter of the field of view to be 3 mm. You notice that the length of a large letter E takes up half the width of the diameter of your field at 10ϫ. The oculars on your microscope are 10ϫ. What is the size of the letter E? Draw what this letter would look like through the microscope.
