Hi can someone please list all the possible calculations for unit 1
Don't want to throw away easy marks

Also if anybody wants to share ways of remembering them then I'm sure it'll benefit everyone!

Stroke Volume
Magnification
Heart Rate
Cardiac Output
Percentage increase/decrease

That about it.
Don't forget, all biology calculations are aimed at E grade maths.
A moron gets them wrong.

Also, DON'T FORGET UNITS.

how do you write cardiac output units? cm^3m^-1?

the units are annoying, why cant they be SI.

For microscopes..

Actual size=image size/magnification
Image size= actual size x magnification
Magnification= image size/actual size

Overthinking much?

Image Size is in millimetres
Magnification has no measurement
Specimen size is in micrometres

If you are looking for the actual size, then you normally just X your answer by 100 to get the units for micrometer.

I thought it could be any size.
Usually you calculate it yourself, from KM to nm
ALL RELATIVE TO metres being 1!!
Kilometers = 1^3
Metres = 1
Millimeters (MM) = 1^-3
MicroM (odd q / u shape then an m for metres).. = 1^-6
NM = 1^-9

I personally remember and use it in exam, probs get u 2 or 5 marks in total if asked. perhaps 7-8 if asked alot of additional theory on wavelengths of light in optical microscopes compared to resolving power of Electron Beams used by Electron Microscopes.
Also possibly questioned on Electron Microscopes being in a vacuum, so no interference or interaction with the beam of electrons by any other elements during its use.

Good Luck biol bros.

edit: Wavelengths of light are RELATIVELY longer than Electron Beam wavelengths -> So, Resolving power (ability to tell the difference between 2 objects apart) (Resolution) in electron microscopes are better than in optical (light) microscopes. Although i'd personally look over the Resolving power definition in your nelson thornes book
