Why does an electron microscope have a greater resolving power than a light microscope?

An optical microscope’s wavelength is that of light, and the electron microscope’s – that of vibrating electrons. As the electron microscope’s wavelength is about 100,000 times smaller than that of light, we get a much better resolving power.
