Made Simple Microscope Experiment

Preface
Microscopes (Greek: micros = small and scopein = see) is a tool to see objects that are too small to see in the naked eye. A microscope is a tool that can be found almost throughout the laboratory to be able to observe small (microscopic) organisms. Maybe for most students in Indonesia are familiar with this microscope, but how for students who are far away in remote areas, far from town or school still do not have this tool, …. easy … following is one way of making simple microscope without expensive tools, but certainly not a microscope-like tool, but it can be used to see small objects like on a microscope, of course still sophisticated microscope hehe

Tools and materials
1. A small piece of wire (the size of a wire on the end of an electric fuse)
2. Water or Aquadest
3. Objects to be seen (posts on newspapers or magazines or pieces of leaves)
 

Procedure
1. Make a small circle on the end of the wire approximately 2 mm in diameter
2. Dip in water to get a drop of water at the end of the circle but do not drip
3. Hold the wire and close the object that will be seen by closer our eyes the end of the wire contained a drop of water earlier
4. Change the position of our eyes or eyes to get the best magnification of the object we see

Discussion

Water droplets form convex lenses that can refract and unite light so that we can see objects clearly and larger, initially the invention of microscopes by early scientists begins in this way that is using small balls that fill with water droplets, with the development of the time then making the microscope is enhanced by the number of lenses that exist in the microscope so that the creation of modern microscopes as it is today.
