Magnification = size of image / size of specimen If you arrange this it will give you ... size of specimen = size of image / magnification Once you have measured the image size and you know the magnification used you are able to put these figures into the above equation N.b make sure you keep your units the same (metres, millimetres, micrometers etc)
