HW C5
A. Compare
LGP (Keck) = (10 m)2 =
100
= 1,562,500
2
LGP (Eye)
(0.008 m)
0.000064
The Keck telescope has more than 1.5 million times greater LGP than your eye.
B.
α = 2.06 x 105 x 550 x 10-9 m = 0.4532 arcseconds
0.25 m
This resolution will allow you to see any double stars with a separation equal to or greater than 0.4532
arcseconds. We would be able to see the two stars.
