The requirement for m = 1 is from an analysis of the extra path distance traveled by ray 1 compared to ray 3 in Figure 38.5. This extra distance must be equal to λ 2 for destructive interference. When the source rays approach the slit at an angle β , there is a distance added to the path difference (of ray 1 compared to ray 3) of
