Hi!

well! I am having some problems in solving the following problem:

"A grating that has 800 lines per mm, the red light of the Balmer series for the Hydrogen atom has a wavelength 6563 angstrom.

(a)What is "d" for the grating expressed in meteres.
(b)If the grating was 1cm what is N?
(c)At what angles would you expect to observe this wavelength?

Well, i have tried to solve the "a" part but i just can't understand the "b" & "c" part. Plz help me.

Thanks in advance

A grating that has 800 lines per mm

(b) If 1mm has 800 lines then how many lines would be there in 1 cm (10 mm)?
Answer to this is N

(c) Use the grating equation. You will need the slit separation d. You can find d from above quoted information.

Read your text. This is a straight forward question.
