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