# Problem 14-10 Double Slit - Part 2 - B

A laser beam with light of wavelength $638.2\; nm$ is used to check a manufacturer's claim that a double slit has a separation of $0.200\; mm.$ The distance to the screen is $3.00\; m$ and the measured distance from the central maximum to the middle of the fourth minimum is $33.2 \;mm.$ What is the measured slit separation?
[Ans. $0.202 \;mm$]

Accumulated Solution

No. Since $N-1$ is just another integer if $N$ is an integer, then this is just the same as $x/L = M\lambda/d$.

There is a mistake in the integer part of the formula.

Try again.
