My question involves understanding why there is a limit to resolution of a microscope. I have a hard time putting what i think is happening into words. My attempt: When light of some wavelength strikes an object on the scale of that same wavelength it gets reflected. Since the details on that object are smaller than the wavelength those surfaces or parts cant reflect the light in the different directions that are needed to distinguish it from the other parts. lol i feel like that is horrible. I have an idea of what i want to say, but not sure if it is right.
