Figure 5-3 Measuring the field of view on low power (100X)
Estimate width of field by comparing with mm marks on the ruler.
Note: do not try to measure field of view under high power (400X).
Just divide the low power value by 4; see item 4 on p. 46.
Estimate size of specimen: diameter of field of view / # of times specimen fits across: estimate size of letter "e" and hydra.
