~ 3 ~ I. Introduction : In this experiment we are going to observe the diffraction pattern of a single and double slit. . We will measure the width of a portion of the projected interference-diffraction and that will let us calculate the wavelength of the light projected from the light source. Experimental Set-up : We will be using a mounted laser, optical bench, and optics kit that contain our double slits, single slits, and other accessories needed for the experiment. We will use a white paper to scribe the diffraction pattern onto before using our metric ruler to measure the widths. Experimental Procedure : Procedure (1): Single Slit 1. For the first procedure we put a single slit onto the optics bench and aligned it so the laser went through the slit of our choice. 2. We recorded the distance from the single slit, to the screen in our data tables. 3. We then found the center brightest spot. We counted the dark spots outward. Our M = for dark spots was 4. 4.
