Unformatted text preview: m away when green laser light of wavelength 532 nm passes through a 25 m slit? Pretend that light from either side of the slit is behaving like light going through a double slit and find the distance between the two central diffraction minima to determine the width of the spot. a) 100 m ; b) 10 cm ; c) 10 m ; d) 1 m ; e) 100 nm What do you know? The distance between minima on the screen is d L / = 532e-9x5/25e-6=0.106m = 10 cm. 1...
