Physics

(a) Would the pattern change if you were to use a shorter wavelength of light? Clearly state what change(s) would occur (if any) and briefly explain why.
(b) The apparatus is surrounded by air. Would the pattern change if it were immersed in water instead? Clearly state what change(s) would occur (if any), and briefly explain why.
