Q10.21 In deriving the single slit diffraction pattern, it was stated that the intensity is zero at angles of . Justify this by suitably dividing the slit to bring out the cancellation.
Let the width of the slit be divided into n equal parts so that
At this angle, each slit will make the first diffraction minimum. therefore the resultant intensity for all the slits will be zero at the angle of .
