Light Questions - Please Help!!! I thought I was doing this problem right, but according to webassign I'm not, and I can't figure out what I've done wrong... please help!! 1. A helium-neon laser emits light that has a wavelength of 632.8 nm. The circular aperture through which the beam emerges has a diameter of 0.500 cm. Estimate the diameter of the beam 16.0 km from the laser. >> Here's what I did: min angle = d/L = .005/16000 = 3.125e-7 min angle = 1.22(lamda/D) -> min angle/1.22 = lambda/D 3.125e-7/1.22 = 6.328e-7/D -> 6.328e-7/2.56e-7 = D = 2.47 Not sure why this is wrong... 2. The second-order bright fringe in a single-slit diffraction pattern is 1.50 mm from the center of the central maximum. The screen is 80.0 cm from a slit of width 0.600 mm. Assuming that the incident light is monochromatic, calculate the light's approximate wavelength. >> I'm not really sure how to start this at all. I know I'm looking for lambda and that a=6.0e-4m, L=0.800m, m=2 Any ideas??
