BIO 119 McCague File-082 Name: _____________________________ Resolution of microscope optics = wavelength of light source used divided by the numerical aperture of the objective plus the numerical aperture of the condenser. Resolution Power = _______ λ (lambda) _______ (N.A. obj. + N.a. condenser) 1. Calculate the resolution of the following microscopes and show your solutions. a. wavelength = 0.45 um, N.A. obj. = 0.25, N.A. cond. = 0.9
