**Double slit diffraction**
Ello,
This is my question,
In a double slit experiment using monochromatic light and two slits 0.50mm apart, it was found that the second dark band was 3.6mm from the centre of the central maximum on teh screen. If th screen was 1.9m from the slits, what was the wavelength of the light used?
I know that I have to use this equation:
x=lambdaL/d
I know these values:
lambda=? (what I need to find)
L=1.9m
d=5*10^-04
But I don't know what x is.
Could someone please help me find the value for x.
Thanks heaps for your help physics help forum.
