Assume a telescope has an aperture of 1 meter. Calculate the telescope's resolution when observing in the near infrared region of the spectrum (λ = 1,000 nm). Does it have better or worse resolution than the violet region of the spectrum (λ = 400 nm)?
A.2 x 10-4 arcseconds; worse
B.4 x 10-2 arcseconds; better
C.0.21 arcseconds; worse
D.21 arcseconds; better
I don't really understand the question
