A Student Activity on Visual Resolving Power
Warren, T. H.; Henriksen, P. N.; Ramsier, R. D.
Physics Education, v38 n5 p413-417 Sep 2003
We present a simple activity in which students measure the resolving power of their eyes. The approach can be used at various levels of sophistication with students having a wide variety of skills and scientific training. We discuss our experiences using this activity with a class of non-science majors as well as with a group of pre-engineering physics students. (Contains 2 figures.)
