A 1.0cm wide diffraction grating has 1000slits. It is illuminated by light of wavelength 550nm. What are the angles of the first two diffraction orders?

• Physics -

What is the angle of incidence?

Whatever it is, use the diffraction equation with orders n=1 and n=2.

The width of the grating won't matter.
