Blog Post 7: Diffraction Experiment with Simulation

Utilizing the difrfaction slides and laser pointers address the following questions.

1. What is the 4 patterns printed on the slides? Somehow draw and post this pattern on your blog, and explain how you arrived at this pattern.

2. Determine the distance between the line patterns on the slides, and how thick the lines may be based on your changing of the simulator to duplicate the pattern you measured.

3. Setup the light wave simulator to simulate the patterns on the 35 mm slides. Grab a picture of these simulations and post them for each of your patterns.

4. Which light can measure smaller things, red light or green light? Post an image of the simulator demonstrating this.

You may not be able to match the simulation perfectly to your measurements, but you certainly can make a judgement on a size range of the lines.
