Thank you all for answering my previous question, but I have yet another one :oops: . I am confused about field of view shrinkage at higher magnifications. A C division Science Olympian told me about this, and I can't seem to find anything pertaining to this topic. The C division student told me that in the tests "they frequently ask this kind of math", but I don't know what sort of math field of view shrinkage would require?

Haven't bothered with the math all that much, but I think what they're talking about is:
Higher magnification = smaller distance represented in field of view = view shrinkage (reduced diameter of field of view)
DFOV1 x magnification1 = DFOV2 x magnification2

Hello,

In the '16-'17 Microbial Diseases List, they states that "Chlamydiasis" would be one of the bacterial diseases. But, I believe that they are referring to "Chlamydia". Did they misspell the disease name, or was "Chlamydiasis" the former spelling of this disease?

Thanks,

For the section where it says about "principles of microscopy", how in-depth are they talking about? I don't really understand how much we need to know about it or if there is any general information.

In the 2016 SoInc cell bio microscopy review, it says that TEM magnifies up to 100,000X while SEM magnifies up to 650,000X. I thought TEM had higher magnification?

You seem to be correct, but the numbers Karen Lancour and SOINC give are way off anyway (other websites give different max magnifications):

"In terms of magnification and resolution, TEM has an advantage compared to SEM. TEM has up to a 50 million magnification level while SEM only offers 2 million as a maximum level of magnification. The resolution of TEM is 0.5 angstroms while SEM has 0.4 nanometers. However, SEM images have a better depth of field compared to TEM produced images.
Another point of difference is the sample thickness, “staining,” and preparations. The sample in TEM is cut thinner in contrast to a SEM sample. In addition, an SEM sample is “stained” by an element that captures the scattered electrons."

For potato blight under fungal diseases, does this mean late potato blight or early potato blight? The former is more well-known while the latter is more commonly found in America.
