    Welcome to Physics Forums!

    You'll probably be more likely to get useful help if you can ask a more focused question. Most of us here probably don't have the Princeton Review AP Physics B book at hand (I know I don't!), so maybe you could try a Google search for web pages about diffraction (on Wikipedia, for example). Then you can give us a link and tell us the specific place(s) where you get stuck.
