Statement of a problem № 11399


In a single-slit diffraction pattern on a flat screen, the central bright fringe is 1.2 cm wide when the slit width is 3.2 x 10-5 m. When the slit is replaced by a second slit, the wavelength of the light and the distance to the screen remaining unchanged, the central bright fringe broadens to a width of 1.9 cm. What is the width of the second slit? It may be assumed that u is so small that sin θ = tan θ.
