Expert Answer

Step 1

From the double-slit experiment,

Advanced Physics homework question answer, step 1, image 1

Here, d is the distance between the slits and n is the whole number.

From the given conditions, the value of maxima is at,

Advanced Physics homework question answer, step 1, image 2

Since the given conditions are for the first-order maxima, the value of n is 1.
