What is the highest-order maximum for 400-nm light falling on double slits separated by 25.0 μ m ?

To determine

The highest order of maximum

Explanation

Given info:

The highest order of maximum for 400 nm light falling on double slits separated by 25μm

Formula used:

dsinθ=mλ

Here, d is the distance between slits, θ is the angle from the original direction of the beam, m is the order of maxima or minima and λ is wavelength of light.

Calculation:

Highest order is occurs when, sinθ=1

Therefore, above formula becomes, m=dλ

We have, d=</
