Whilst finding the magnification of a compound microscope, we multiply the linear magnification of the objective with the angular magnification of the eyepiece. This gives us the angular magnification of the microscope.
Why do we use angular magnification for the eyepiece and not linear magnification? Or alternatively, why don't we use the angular magnification of the objective?
I read the following similar question answered here a couple of years ago - Magnification in compound microscope
But I haven't learnt about wave optics so how do you explain this using ray optics?
