Unformatted text preview: we used different sizes of slits or objects to calculate the three different parameters derived in the formula. Analysis is in following pages. Conclusion: With the experiments made in this lab we were able to prove the veracity of the formula derived in the experiment manual. This consequently helped us understand the concept of diffraction and to prove that light actually bends as it moves though a small opening, in spite our intuition telling us light must always travel in a straight path. In this experiment we used one of many applications diffraction may have. We used diffraction to calculate the width of a human hair, something that may be impossible to measure with different means....
