P38.68 For a diffraction grating, the locations of the principal maxima for wavelength are given by sin =≈ m d y L . The grating spacing may be expressed as d a N = where a is the width of the grating and N is the number of slits. Thus, the screen locations of the maxima become y NLm a = . If two nearly equal wavelengths are present, the difference in the screen locations of corresponding
