Width of slit

  1. May 11, 2010 #1
    The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Microwaves of wavelength 2.80 cm fall on a slit and the central maximum at a distance of 1.0 m from the slit is found to have a half-width (i. e. distance from middle of central maximum to first minimum) of 0.67 m. Find the width of the slit.

    Have you tried the problem yet?
    Hint: Half width is half the distance between two maxima.
