    Default What is the difference

    Need to know the difference between "Macroscropic" and "Macroscopic"

    Have seen usage of both, but do not know the difference.

    Thanks

    Macroscropic is a misspelling. Macroscopic is not.

    Now, you may want to know the difference between macroscopic and microscopic: something that usually appears in tests.

    Cool Re: What is the difference

    Lexically, "macroscopic" means large enough to be observed by the naked eye. "Microscopic" on the other hand, means invisible or indistinguishable without the use of a miscroscope. In literature, the words are used in figurative manners. To define a short story, for example, one may say, it is a reproduction of macrocosm in micrcosm. It suggests, within a very brief compass, a universe has to be focused. The offence of the boy in stealing a bread turns microscopic when viewed through the macroscope of acute poverty.
