In the context of a microscope the word 'resolution' describes the shortest distance that is found between two specimens that can be distinguished by the observer and also the camera system. Both can observe it as separate entities.

The word has some other technical uses also and it can describe the power of a computer screen or printer through which it can give a clear image. The clarity of the image depends upon the size of the dots that constitute the image. You can often see the use of the word in this context in association with the word 'graphics'.

There are some non-technical uses also that can be taken from the word and you can convey the idea of a resolve that you have made to attain some goal.
