SOLUTIONS 1. A diffraction grating has lines spaced 2.00 m apart. Let's consider white visible light . (wavelengths ranging from 0.400 m for violet light to 0.700 m for red light) shining on .. it. (a) Determine all the angles for which interference maxima occur for violet light. sin 0.400 m 2.00 m 0.200 )- . . œ 7 Î. œ 7Ð ÑÎÐ Ñ œ 7Ð Ñ 0 sin 0 Ê œ Ê œ )) 00 1 sin 0.200 11.5° Ê œ Ê œ 10 2 sin 0.400 23.6° Ê œ Ê œ 20 3 sin 0.600 36.9° Ê œ Ê œ 30 4 sin 0.800 53.1° Ê œ Ê œ 40 5 sin 1.000 90° Ê œ Ê œ 50 (b) Determine all the angles for which interference maxima occur for red light. sin 0.700 m 2.00 m 0.350 . . œ 7 Î. œ 7Ð ÑÎÐ Ñ œ 7Ð Ñ 0 sin 0 Ê œ Ê œ 1 sin 0.350 20.5° Ê œ Ê œ 2 sin 0.700 44.4° Ê œ Ê œ 3 sin 1.050 which is impossible Ê œ ) 3 (c) Over what range of angles are the first, second, etc. orders of the spectrum found?
