    How to Measure magnification
    How can I see how strong a magnifying glass is?


    I bought this magnifying glass http://www.liangdianup.com/inventory/189901.htm and I want

    to know how to test it to see how strong it is. I hear a lot of people talk about

    magnifying and how strong the magnification is, but I would like to know the true

    magnification of my magnifying glass. I have a few of them and some seem stronger then

    others. How can I rate these? How can I pin a correct number on mine? How do the companies

    that make these come up with these numbers.

    You can project an image on a screen and either measure the distances between the object and the image to the lens or the height of the object and the image. More about this can be found here:

    the magnification glass will come with a small paper just get a glance of it in which it will be mentioned about the magnification capability of the lens which you have purchased or just enquire the guy who has sold the glass to you
