what is the formula for resolving power of telescope and microscope.
also write the formula for limit of resolution for a telescope and a microscope.

For telescope: Resolving power = D/1.22λ, here D is diameter of aperture, and lambda is the wavelength of light used........
For microscope: Resolving power =​ 2usin@ / 1.22λ, here u = refractive index, @ = angle subtended by object on objective, lambda is wavelength.....
Limit of resolution is just reciprocal of Resolving power
