Abstract

A method is presented for the theoretical estimation of the magnitude of error in the experimental determination of sphere size distribution and population density by transmission microscopy arising as a consequence of deviations in the thicknesses of the sections used from the putative value, i.e. the thickness which the sections are purported or believed to possess.

If, in an experimental situation the distribution of section thicknesses about the mean value is known, the treatment enables the range of error in determining the sphere size distribution and population density arising from variations in section thickness to be estimated.
