I was given 400 nm. I was tasked to find n but i kept getting a value which is a not a integer. The value of n must be an integer right?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1/W = R(1/4 - 1/n^2)

manipulate

n=sqrt(4RW/RW-4)

where R=1.097e7

n=6.752

I am thinking to make n as 6. But are there values of n greater than 5?
