Problems: Wave particle duality

IB Physics: Problems: Wave particle duality

1. Given that the resolving power of a microscope is proportional to the 1/wavelength of radiation used, show that if 600nm light is replaced with electrons accelerated through a Pd of 40,000V the resolving power will increase by a factor 105.Note: The resolving power also depends on the size of the aperture and the refractive index of the lenses. In this calculation assume all of this is constant, in reality of course...
