The destructive interference formula for diffraction grating problems is .

### What is the definition of destructive interference?

Destructive interference happens when the maxima of two waves are 180° out of phase a positive displacement of one wave is canceled exactly by a negative displacement of the other wave.

The formula for brighter patches resulting from constructive interference and darker patches resulting from destructive interference in a diffraction grating is:

The grating spacing is denoted by d, the angle of light is denoted by a the fringe order is denoted by n, and the wavelength is denoted by .

The destructive interference formula is now based on the fact that destructive interference occurs between the fringes.

Hence the destructive interference formula for diffraction grating problems is .
