Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am a bit confused about the units of

L = (0.9λ)/(βcosθ)

the Scherrer equation used in powder diffraction. My idea is

λ= radiation wavelength with unit (angstrom)

β= FWHM with unit (radians)

θ= braggs angle with unit (degrees)

L= particle size with unit (angstrom)

Am I right in saying so???

Thanks
