17. The angular positions of the maxima of a two-slit interference pattern are given by sin dm θ λ = , where d is the slit separation, λ is the wavelength, and m is an integer. If is small, sin may be approximated by in radians. Then, = m λ / d to good approximation. The angular separation of two adjacent maxima is
