What are microscopes
Some of the different types of microscopes are electronic microscopes, simple microscopes, compound microscopes, dissection microscopes etc.
They use these different microscopes to find things too small for the naked eye but they can be used for many other things like particles different parts of organisms too small for the naked eye to see. Scientists use microscopes to generally see cells much too small for the naked eye to see.
What is the difference of a wet mount slide and a dry mount slide
Wet mount slides are used to contain the organelles that get squashed by the mount.
The procedure for doing that is:
Place the cell or specimen on a microsope slide with a drop of water on it. Gently place the thin glass cover slip onto it. The best way to do that is to place the edge of the cover slip first and lower it onto the specimen. Then use some filter paper to soak up the excess water.
Dry mount slides aren't as effective because the organelles will get squashed and they will go everywhere. That is is why you should use a wet mount slide instead of a dry mount slides.
