Default Compound microscope help!? Part 2?



So we were asked to place a very small piece of paper with a printed letter e on it on a glass slide.Then we were instructed to put a drop of water on the paper, place a cover slip, and view the slide under a compound microscope.

While looking through the eyepiece, move your slide right, left, up, down. Describe the direction of movement as seen under the microscope. Explain why your observation is such.

(Please relate this to the relationship between light and lenses. On my part, I think that the letter e would appear inverted. Am I right?)

Thank you very much!

WE also had that experiment two years ago. the method is called wet-mount method. That is when u put a drop of water on your specimen. The directions are reversed as you look at it on the eyepiece. It is due to the mirrors and lenses used on the microscope. There is a mirror at the bottom which reflects light and can also influence the view that u can see at the eyepiece. Yes, the letter e will be inverted.
