Explain what is Resolving power?

Asked by  | 29th Jan, 2010, 12:19: PM

Expert Answer:

Resolving power is the ability of the instrument to seaparate out angularly, spatially two points of the object under examination.

For example, when we use binoculars to get a clear view of distant single rock, we might find that in fact it's one rock sitting on another rock.

So binoculars have higher resolving power than our eyes, with the help of it we could tell the single rock is in fact two, one on the top of other.
