Yellow light of wavelength 583 nm is used to view an object under a microscope. The
objective lens diameter is 8.55 mm. (a.) What is the limiting angle of resolution? (b.)
Suppose it is possible to use visible light of any wavelength. What color should you
choose to give the smallest possible angle of resolution, and what is this angle? (c.)
Suppose water fi lls the space between the object and the objective lens. What e ffect
does this change have on the resolving power when 583 nm light is used?
