The following data was obtained via the double slit experiment:
angle to the eighth maximum = 1.12 degrees
distance from slits to screen = 302cm = 3.02m
distance from first to fifth mimum = 2.95cm
distance between slits = 0.00025m
find the wavelength.
supposed to use this equation to find wavelength:
The Attempt at a Solution
problem is, there's no given value for xm or xn
how can i get this value?
(oh, and i specifically have to use the equation listed above)
