This ability to show more detail clearly and so give more information is called the resolving power. The unaided human eye can only separate two objects that are approximately 0-2 mm apart, at a distance from the eye of 25 cm. Objects closer than this appear as a single object. A good example of this is to look at a newsprint photograph. First look at it with the unaided eye. You will see the picture and you may be able to see dots. Now look at it with a hand lens and you will see that the picture is resolved into a large number of black and white dots.

Why is there Bovril in the medium? 8. What is the purpose of Tubes 3 and 4 (controls)? 1, is a black mould showing world-wide distribution. It is a heterotrophic organism which shows itself able to utilise a large variety of food substances, and in this experiment we will examine its ability to utilise starch. Starch is a long-chain polysaccharide consisting of as many as 1000 glucose units. Its wide occurrence in plant material makes it an important substrate for the growth of micro-organisms.
