Deriving Diffraction Formula

  1. Oct 28, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Basically there's a question that I'm doing which asks me to show how to derive:
    n lambda=d sin theta
    We haven't learnt it yet and so how do you do it?

    2. Relevant equations
    n lambda=d sin theta

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Not a clue!
