Yellow light of wavelength 589nm is used to illuminate a single slit of width 0.225 mm resulting in the formation of a diffraction pattern on a distant screen that is located 3.50 m away from the slit. Calculate the width of the broad diffraction peak (i.e. distance on the screen between the first diffraction minima on each side ofthe central maximum).
