*Misconceptions regarding elementary aspects of Microscopy and Size*?

Do all biology students are afraid of mathematics?

Do we need to know about all the fundamentals of science?

Misconceptions Regarding Elementary Aspects of Microscopy and Size

Yesterday we came across very elementary aspects of microscopy in the context of Moina as a model system @anindita8820

Moina ,a freshwater organism under crustaceans.Also a Close relative of prawns and crabs​:shrimp:

Cubists are using milk a feed for Moina . @sakshiconsultant2002 @dhanraj7

Milk is a source of energy, such as glucose which is helpful for the growth and reproduction of bacteria .

We came across an interesting question “How do Moina take bacteria, Do they have eyes” !?

@anindita8820 's Hypothesis : Moina do have eyes that may be helpful for them to capture bacteria !!

Are we not curious why we are not able to see bacteria in nacked eyes but microscope does !!!

How do Microscope help us to magnify such small objects ! @⁨Anindita Mandal Cube⁩

Microscope is a magician !!!

According to @⁨Anindita Mandal Cube⁩
bacteria having 0.001µm in size .

How do we communicate such small sizes to anyone !!!

During that discussion most of us @⁨Anindita Mandal Cube⁩ @⁨Smiti⁩ @⁨Khushi⁩ @⁨Aditya Joshi⁩ tried to convert that to m ,cm ,mm & al .But most us got stuck in certain portions .

Why we called 10^9, 10^6 like that? What that means !?

Can we go to some flashback stories @⁨~Saida Sayyed⁩ @⁨Abhijeet Cube⁩

When I am discussing my PG project with Cubists last year, *we came across the size of a nanometer !*

Arunan Sir asked me to explain the nanometer size to a school student

I replied that ,sir i know that 1 nm = 10^9 m, Also i am weak in mathamatics

But at the end of the Chatshaala i understood the fundamentals of measures .@⁨Abhijeet Cube⁩ @⁨~Saida Sayyed⁩

Can we think of the most common instrument that we all can correlate !!!@⁨Anindita Mandal Cube⁩ @⁨Smiti⁩

Yes we do have instrumental box & that contains 15cm long ruler .

If we look 1cm in it , are we seeing 10 divisions on it .
(1cm =10mm)

If we split that 1 division, can we get 1000 such divisions .(1mm=1000µm
)
1um =0.001mm

now are we reach how small our bacteria is !!!

Coming to Microscope ,that is having
Eye piece 10x
Objective lens 100x
Magnification =1000*

Magics of microscopy

Are we seeing 1000 times magnified version of 0.001um-sized bacteria .please share your experience where we got stuck during chatshala discussions. @⁨Anindita Mandal Cube⁩ @⁨Smiti⁩ & others @Smiti @Abhi0703 @anindita8820 @KhushiGupta @saida786110 & others
