The purpose of this experiment was to observe the diffraction patterns formed by laser light passing through a single slit and verify the position of minima and determine the position matches with the theoretically predicted position. This was ascertained by comparing the value calculated slit width with selected slit width of 0.04mm. It was hypothesized that there would be variations in calculated value and selected value.
