You measure distances from the center of a diffraction pattern (y) to a series of dark fringes on a screen that is 0.3000 ± 0.0005 m away from the 0.04-mm wide slit you are using to create the pattern. You create a plot of y (in m) vs m and get a slope for the best-fit line of 0.005245 ± 8.575 10-6. What is the wavelength of the laser you used to collect the data? Please include the answer in regular notation.

Thank you

Solution: rarr{:[D=0.3000+-0.0005m],[d=0.04mm],[=0.04 xx10^(-3)m],[x_(m)=0.005245+-8.575 xx10^(-6)]:}Since we know that, position of dark fringe in case of diffraction-(or){:[x_(m)=(D)/(d)m lambda], ... See the full answer
