Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a gaussian of the form

[tex]exp[-\frac{\pi*x^{2}}{A^2}][/tex].

I know that the FWHM=0.939A, but I cannot prove it.

I Let [tex]exp[-\frac{\pi*x^{2}}{A^2}=0.5[/tex] (i.e. the half maximum part)

taking natural logs I get rid of the exponential, but then which bit represents the full width?
