Scientists shine a laser beam on a -wide slit and produce a diffraction pattern on a screen behind the slit. Careful measurements show that the intensity first falls to of maximum at a distance of from the center of the diffraction pattern. What is the wavelength of the laser light?

The wavelength of the laser light

The parameters derived the luminosity as a function of y.

(Rearrange)

Recall that we desire to determine, but that the sin and integer both have the same term, we have a mystical equation that must be solved by trial and error or by graph. To simplify the equation, we implement the following substitution.

Now **you'll be able to** see by the equation above, we're **trying to find** **the purpose** where **the worth** equals **the worth**, or the spot where the graphs of two functions meet. All **we've got** **to try and do** **now could be** draw **and find out** the midpoint, which I **wiped out** Desmos, as shown by the image below.

So we obtained x=1.895 as the precise point x which fits the transcendental equation. Hence
