# Angular resolution

If we know the bolometric flux, spectral type, and effective temperature of a given star, how can we derive the angular resolution from the information?

This was brought up in class and I've found myself obsessing since I can't figure it out.

I've found formula (3) of this page that gives the limb-darkened diameter of a star given its bolometric flux and effective temperature

Perhaps you know some formula relating the angular resolution with the limb-darkened diameter...
