Margaret Rah MP4 34135084 VI. Diffraction Pattern --- ------- --- In this experiment we used the double slit and the single slit pattern to find the minuma relative to the location of the center of the central maximum. X -5 X -3 X -1 X 1 X 3 X 5 -1.2 -.8 -.4 .4 .9 1.3 Using the LINEST function in excel we find that the slope=.262857 a experimental = .24 mm a stated value = .25 mm Percent difference = 4% VI-2 Diffraction from a single slit - - --- - - X -4 X -3 X -2 X -1 X 1 X 2 X 3 X 4 -10.6 -7.8 -5.1 -2.5 2.5 5.1 7.7 10.5 Using the LINEST function in excel we find that the slope of the line is 2.605
