The Diffraction Grating

The Diffraction Grating problem 1

A beam of light of wavelength 600 nm is propagated perpendicular to a diffraction grating with a grating spacing of .

  • What is the greatest possible order of the maximum?

  • If the diffracted beam is observed on a screen 1 m away, what is the distance between the first

    () and the second () order maxima?
