Alternatively, it has been suggested that the HPF diameter per area can also be calculated by using the following formulas (40): (1) Measure the diameter of a low-power field by using a ruler; (2) Calculate a constant by using the following formula: Eyepiece Magnification x Objective Magnification x Microscopic Field Diameter = A Constant; (3) Calculate the diameter of an HPF for other objectives by using the following formula: Unknown Field Diameter = Constant/(Eyepiece Magnification x Objective Magnification); and (4) Calculate the area of the HPF as follows: Half of the field diameter is the radius of the field (r), and 3.1415 x [r.sup.2] = Area of Microscopic Field.
