    Use of magnify

    Hi,

    Is use of "magnify" in the following sentences correct grammatically and conceptually? If it is not , kindly suggest ways to make it clearer.

    The regions of trailing edge (TE), leading edge (LE) and partial view of blade tip are magnified,in order to have a better clarity in Fig. 4.

    Re: Use of magnify

    Yes. Strictly speaking, it's the views that are magnified, not the edges. But you've used 'views', so it's OK. I'd write, "The views of the trailing edge ..."
