# Microscope Resolution#

We saw that diffraction limits our ability to focus waves.

## Question Text#

If we could create diffraction-limited microscopes with electrons, neutrons and visible light, rank these microscopes from highest resolution to lowest resolution. (Take $$400$$ nm to be the wavelength of visible light, the mass of an electron is $$9.11 \times 10^{-31}$$ kg, $$h = 6.26 \times 10^{-34}$$ Js, the mass of a neutron is $$1.67 \times 10^{-27}$$ kg, and take the speed of an electron and neutron to be $$9 \times 10^6$$ m/s. )
