19. The condition for a maximum in the two-slit interference pattern is d sin θ = m λ , where d is the slit separation, λ is the wavelength, m is an integer, and is the angle made by the interfering rays with the forward direction. If is small, sin may be approximated by in radians. Then, = m λ / d , and the angular separation of adjacent
