Homework Help: Size of the Diffraction grating ?

  1. Apr 17, 2013 #1
    Size of the "Diffraction grating"?

    Is the size of the "Diffraction grating" related to the sharpness/brightness of the lines of spectrum which are produced by it?

    Sharpness, yes. If there are more slits, the lines will be sharper. The brightness wouldn't change, I don't think.
