# Define Magnifying Power of a Microscope in Terms of Visual Angle. - Physics (Theory)

Short Note

Define the magnifying power of a microscope in terms of visual angle.

#### Solution

Magnifying power of a microscope is defined as the ratio of visual angle subtended by the image at the eye to the angle subtended by the object when both are at the distance of district vision.

i.e.; M = β/α
