Question: 

In a double-slit experiment, the third-order maximum for light of wavelength 480 nm is located 16 mm from the central bright spot on a screen 1.6 m from the slits. Light of wavelength 650 nm is then projected through the same slits. How far from the central bright spot will the second-order maximum of this light be located?
