One is angular radius of central bright is given 1.22 lamda/D Other is diameter of central bright is kanda/D. Which one is correct. ? __________________ If science solves one problem, it creates ten other problems.

Yeah, it's lambda.

It depends what you are talking about. The value $\displaystyle 1.22 \lambda$ is the distance to the first minimum from the centre of an Airy disk.

If you have some other pattern, you might instead have a different formula.

In case of diffraction from circular aperture radius of central bright is given as 1.22 lamda/D In case of fresnel calculation diffraction from circular aperture diameter is given as kanda/D ....How? __________________ If science solves one problem, it creates ten other problems.
