hi everybody.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a problem in finding the width of central maximum in a single slit diffraction pattern. theoritically, we say it is the distance between the two first minima on either sides of the central maxima. i feel this calculation leads to the width of central maxima+half minima on one side+half minima on other side.

please somebody help me.
