**1. Homework Statement**

The light shining on a diffraction grating has a wavelength of 488 nm (in vacuum). The grating produces a second-order bright fringe whose position is defined by an angle of 8.02°. How many lines per centimeter does the grating have?

**2. Homework Equations**

d sin q = nl

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

d = (2)(488)/sin(8.02) = 6995.474955

d = 1/N

N = 1/d = 1/6995.474955 =1.429495505X10^-4 (per M) X 100 = 0.014294955

It got this answer and it is wrong, I have no idea where to go from here or what to do and would be grateful of any help, thanks!
