Question:

Using diffraction seems to be a useful technique for measuring size of small object. Is there a lower limit for size of objects that can be measured this way?

Nilay A.
Answer:

We know that: $$ \sin(\theta) = m\lambda/a $$ Since $$ \sin(\theta) \leq 1 \implies \lambda \leq a $$ So you cant measure the size of the object shorter than the wavelength of the light.

Question:

What is Dangling Pointer?

Nilay A.
Answer:

Dangling Pointer is a pointer that doesn't point to a valid memory location. They arise when an object is deleted or de-allocated, without modifying the value to the pointer, so that the pointer still points to the memory location of the deallocated memory. Following is an example: int *ptr = (int *)malloc(sizeof(int)) free(ptr) In this example "ptr" becomes a dangling pointer after freeing it and any operation on "ptr" now like *(value of) or &(address of) becomes invalid.
