Abstract
In part 1 “Between line pairs and sampling distances” of this split entry on spatial resolution, it was mentioned that this second part would focus on some fundamental laws of electromagnetic radiation to shed more light on the concepts of spatial resolving power and spatial resolution. The numbering of chapters, illustrations and equations simply continues so that one can easily merge both parts into one larger text. However, and in contrast to what was initially stated, this entry will not be the final part about spatial resolution. Because there is quite some, but still basic, ground to cover once the physical views on spatial resolution start to complement the geometrical ones, there will also be a third part. This approach also prevents any of these entries from becoming too lengthy.
