Question

As an example of diffraction by apertures of everyday dimensions, consider a doorway of width $1.0 \mathrm{~m}$. (a) Compute the angular position of the first minimum in the diffraction pattern of 600-nm light. (b) Repeat this calculation for a musical note of frequency $440 \mathrm{~Hz}$ (A above middle C). Take the speed of sound to be $343 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$.

Step 1

1 of 6$\textbf{(a)}$ In this part we consider a single-slit diffraction pattern in which light of wavelength $\lambda = 600\mathrm{~nm}$ is used and the slit width is $D = 1.00\mathrm{~m}$.

We are required to find the angular position of the first minimum.
