A single slit of width 1.50 um is illuminated with light of wavelenth 500.0 nm. What is the angualar width of the central maximum?
[tex]500nm \neq 5\times 10^{-9}m[/tex]wayneo said:(5 * 10^-9) / (1.5 *10^-6)
first, 500 nm = 500 times 10^-9.wayneo said:I tried the formula &= wavelenth / b and came up with (5 * 10^-9) / (1.5 *10^-6) and got 3.33 * 10^-3 then multiplied this by 2. is this right?
