My physics teacher assigned a whole bunch of homework that no one remembers how to do because we haven't taken light for a year and a half. I have gone through all of my old stuff but can't find the right unit, and what I did find isn't in enough detail. I am getting really frustrated with this so hopefully some of you guys can help me out.

**1) In a double slit experiment a student used a diffraction grating in which the slit separation was 1.00x10^-4m. A screen was placed at a distance of 4.00x10^-1m from the grating. The student measured the distance from the central maximum to the 2nd order minimum and found it to be 3.00 x 10^-3m. What was the frequency of the light used by the student?**

Answer ---> 6.00 x 10^14 Hz

**2) Calculate the frequency of monochromatic light used in a diffraction experiment if the 1st order maximimum is observed at an angle of deviation of 28 degrees when the slits of the diffraction grating are 1.00x10^-6m apart.**

6.39 x 10^14 Hz

**3) Light with a frequency of 4.28 x 10^14 Hz is diffracted by a diffraction grating ruled 5.00 x 10^5 lines/m. On a screen 2.00m from the grating maxima are 7.00 x 10^-1m apart. What is the distance between maxima if the frequency of the light was increased 1.50 times while all other variable remain constant?**

Answer ---> 4.66 x 10^-1 m
