Can anyone explain this to me? Is it correct to say that the difference in the patterns produced by monochromatic and white light is caused by the fact that monochromatic light waves interfere with each other when they pass through a diffraction grating,while the rays of white light do not? I don't know what diffraction grating is and I don't understand the question.
