What is the distance between lines on a diffraction grating that produces a second-order maximum for 760-nm red light at an angle of 60.0°?

To determine

The distance between lines on a diffraction grating

Explanation

Given info:

A diffraction grating produces a second order maximum for 760 nm red light at an angle of 60ο

Formula used:

For diffraction grating,

dsinθ=mλ

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

Calculation:

We have, d=?λ=760 nm, m=2,θ=60ο.

Substituting these values in above, relation we get

dsin60ο=2×7
