1) By using a good compound light microscope with a resolving power of 0.3 µm, a 10X ocular lens, and a 100X oil immersion lens, would you be capable to discern two objects separated by 3 µm? 0.3 µm? 300 nm? describe why would, or wouldn't, you be capable to do this with the presented microscope?
2) Describe why can prokaryotic cells be smaller than the eukaryotic cells and still carry on all of the functions of life?
