Chapter 36, Problem 3P
Textbook Problem

A laser beam is incident on two slits with a separation of 0.200 mm. and a screen is placed 5.00 m from the slits. An interference pattern appears on the screen. If the angle from the center fringe to the first bright fringe to the side is 0.181°, what is the wavelength of the laser light?
