Tutor description

A cell is the basic unit of life. Its function is to carry out life processes. Its size is too small to be seen with the naked eye. We need an instrument called a microscope to look at cells and to study the general structure of a cell. Microscopes are used in laboratories to make small objects appear larger. Some school laboratories have microscopes that can magnify the size of an object by as much as 600 times.
