Whats located on the stage adjusts the amount of light passing into the slide?

Whats located on the stage adjusts the amount of light passing into the slide?

Diaphragm or Iris: The diaphragm or iris is located under the stage and is an apparatus that can be adjusted to vary the intensity, and size, of the cone of light that is projected through the slide.

Which part of the microscope adjusts the amount of light passing through a specimen?

Iris diaphragm
Iris diaphragm dial: Dial attached to the condenser that regulates the amount of light passing through the condenser. The iris diaphragm permits the best possible contrast when viewing the specimen.

How do you adjust the amount of light when viewing a slide through the microscope?

It is possible to control the amount of light that shines through the slide by changing the size of the opening present in the stage. It is also possible to change the illumination by moving the mirror in microscopes that use one or by changing the brightness of the light source in the Illuminator.

What is one way to adjust the light in the microscope?

The microscope rheostat control can be found on the side of the compound microscope body. It will typically be a knob that is turned clockwise in order to increase the light intensity, or counter-clockwise to reduce the light.

What is the located on the side of the frame used to adjust the focus of the microscope?

Coarse
Coarse and Fine Adjustment knob(s) – Located on the side of the frame, below the stage, allow the observer to adjust the focus of the microscope.

What part of the microscope increases or decreases the light intensity?

There are essentially three ways to vary the brightness; by increasing or decreasing the light intensity (using the on/off knob), by moving the condenser lens closer to or farther from the object using the condenser adjustment knob, and/or by opening/closing the iris diaphragm.

What part of the microscope supports the slide?

Stage clips
Stage: The flat platform where you place your slides. Stage clips hold the slides in place. Revolving Nosepiece or Turret: This is the part that holds two or more objective lenses and can be rotated to easily change power.
