ConceptDiffraction Resolving Power of Microscope and Astronomical Telescope

#### Question

You are given following three lenses. Which two lenses will you use as an eyepiece and as an objective to construct an astronomical telescope?

 Lens Power (P) Aperture (A) L1 3D 8 cm L2 6D 1 cm L3 10D 1 cm

#### Solution

For constructing an astronomical telescope, the objective should have the maximum diameter. Of the three lenses given, L1 has the maximum diameter.

The eyepiece should have the highest power for better magnification. Therefore, we use lens L3.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
