# Solution - The Resolving Power of a Telescope Depends Upon the - HSC Science (Electronics) 12th Board Exam - Physics

ConceptResolving Power of a Microscope and Telescope

#### Question

The resolving power of a telescope depends upon the...............

(a) length of the telescope

(b) focal length of an objective

(c) diameter of an objective

(d) focal length of an eyepiece

#### Solution

(c) diameter of an objective

R.P of telescope = 1/(d theta)=a/(1.22lambda)

Thus, it is clear that a telescope with a large diameter of the objective has higher resolving power. Thus, the resolving power of a telescope depends on the diameter of an objective.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
