Draw a ray diagram to show the image formation by a compound microscope when the final image is formed at the near point. Define the resolving power of a microscope. Write two factors by which resolving power can be increased?
Resolving power of a microscope can be defined as:
a quantity that characterizes the ability of optical instruments to produce separate images of two points of an object that are close to each other.
It depends on the Diameters of the objective so that they are able to increase their light gathering capacity. And also on the light being used for observation so that it does not get diffaracted beyond recognition.
