a) Determine the linear size on the screen of the 2nd maximum (not including the central maximum).

b) Determine how many total maxima occur in the pattern.

a) I thought for a single slit, the equation would be y=WL*m*L/a, but my answer comes out incorrect. The answer is 2.64m

b) I have no idea but the answer is 5.
