Question
The analysis shown in the figure below also applies to diffraction gratings with lines separated by a distance $d$. What is the distance between fringes produced by a diffraction grating having 125 lines per centimeter for 600-nm light, if the screen is 1.50 m away?
Question Image
<b>Figure 27.56</b> The distance between adjacent fringes is a function of the distance to the screen, wavelength, and slit separation, assuming the slit separation is large compared with the wavelength.
