I need help with my physics lab questions about diffraction grafting

  1. Sep 30, 2012 #1
    1) If "d" is the grafting constant "spacing between 2 slits on a grating), hwo can we obtain the ruling (number of grooves per meter) "D"?

    2) Illistrate order of diffraction

    1. Did you read the "Do NOT POST HOMEWORK" notice at the top of this forum.
    2. It's a 'grating constant'. "Grafting" is what gardeners do with fruit trees.
    3. Isn't this in your notes? How is 'number per unit length' related to 'spacing'? Imagine it was a row of fence posts.
