Unreasonable ResultsRed light of wavelength of 700 nm falls on a double slit separated by 400 nm. (a) At what angle is the first-order maximum in the diffraction pattern? (b) What is unreasonable about this result? (c) Which assumptions are unreasonable or inconsistent?

To determine

(a)

At what angle is the first-order maximum in the diffraction pattern if red light of wavelength of 700 nm falls on a double slit separated by 400 nm?

Explanation

Given info:

d=400nmλ=700nmm=1

Formula used:

There is constructive interference for a diffraction grating when,

dsinθ=mλ,   m=0,1,1,2,2

To determine

(b)

To determine

(c)

Which assumptions are unreasonable or inconsistent?
