Question

g n diffraction, the formula for minima is given by a times s i n (theta )equals m lambda, where a is the width of the slit, theta is the angle of dispersion, m is the order, and lambda is the wavelength. For a wavelength of 630 nm, m equals 3, and a equals 5 times 10 to the power of negative 6 end exponent m. Calculate the angular spread in Degrees. Enter only the numerical value (i.e. omit the unit abbreviations when inputting your answer into Blackboard).

θ = 22.2

Explanation:

This is a diffraction exercise

a sin θ = m λ

The extension of the third zero is requested (m = 3)

They indicate the wavelength  λ = 630 nm = 630 10⁻⁹ m and the width of the slit  a = 5 10⁻⁶ m

sin  θ = m λ / a

sin  θ = 3 630 10⁻⁹ / 5 10⁻⁶

sin  θ = 3.78 10⁻¹ = 0.378

θ = sin⁻¹  0.378

to better see the result let’s find the angle in radians
