Answer :

Given data-


Focal length of the objective lens, fo = 1.0 cm


Focal length of the eyepiece , fe = 5 cm


Distance between Object and objective lens, u0 = 0.5 cm


Distance between image and eyepiece, ve = 30 cm


Applying lens formula for objective lens






For compound microscope, the objective lens forms a virtual image at the side same as that of the


object at a distance of 1 cm from the objective lens.


This image formed by the objective lens acts as a virtual object for the eyepiece.


Now applying lens formula for the eyepiece







Hence the Separation between the objective and the eyepiece becomes


6 − 1 = 5 cm
