# Slit Distance - Young's Double Slit Experiment

## Main Question or Discussion Point

I understand Young's Double Slit Experiment, which basically consists of pointing a laser through two slits and seeing the maxima with different brightness, caused by constructive and destructive interference respectively. Through the experiment, I know that increasing the distance between the two slits will cause the distance between the maxima to decrease, which can be seen through the formula. However, I'm not too sure how to explain this in words, can anyone please explain to me why this occurs? Thanks :D
