Okay last question I need help with

Monochromatic light of 605 nm falls on a single slit, which is located 85 cm from a screen. The first dark band appears at 5.4 mm from the center. How wide is the slit?

0.001 mm

0.050 mm

0.095 mm

1.50 mm

  2. 1 * 605 * 10^-9 * .85 / 5.4 *10^3

    = 95 * 10^-6 m

    = .095 mm
