Measuring the field of view on low power
Estimate width of field by comparing with mm marks on the ruler.
Note: you do not have to measure field of view under high power (400X). Just divide the low power value by 4 as suggested by step 10. on p. 36.
Estimate size of specimen: diameter of field of view / # of times specimen fits across. p. 36
