Single Slit Diffraction – Experiment (and Sample Data)
The following learning objectives are met in this experiment:
- Explain and discuss the diffraction of waves at apertures and obstacles;
- Describe and explain simple diffraction phenomena;
- Explain and discuss the appearance of the diffraction pattern from a single slit, using monochromatic and white light;
- Use ?? = ??/b for the position of the first interference minimum in single slit diffraction.
Sample data is included.
