If sunlight of color B is scattered through an angle 16 times greater than sunlight of color A, then the wavelength of color B is?

Dx, you should know by now that you have to show your work.
I believe this is understood stuffy. If I don't say anything since the forum states "you must include your work with the problems" but I don't want to beat a dying horse here so forget it. I am asking for help you can choose to help or not thats your decision. I don't want to argue with anyone, just asking for anyes help who wants to if not its ok. Anyways, can someone justdelete this thread since its really getting off the subject of what I have asked, please.Originally posted by stuffy
You could at least say you don't know where to start so you can get some hints. :P
OK, I assume this is scattering by diffraction. First tell me what is the relationship between wavelength and diffraction angle.Originally posted by Dx

See this is what thorws me off too. I am unclear what to do so lets go with what your saying if its not right ok then but at least i learned something.Originally posted by Tom

This is the formula for 2-slit interference; I was thinking that it was single-slit diffraction. But OK, let's proceed with this one. If the other one was intended, it is a simple thing to fix.Originally posted by Dx
sin[the] = [lamb]/D.
No, you are supposed to calculate the answer to find out what it is. Set up two equations as follows:I am to assue that the ans is simply 1/16 of that color of A or no?
I suspect what Dx is talking about is Raleigh Scattering, which is dependent on wavelength and goes as the inverse fourth power of the wavelength, which means B is half the wavelength of A. The factor of 16 is the scattering intensity and not the angle.Originally posted by Dx
