Blog post 7: diffraction experiment with simulation

1. top four squares of the green slide:
horizontal slits on the slide for the left on the bottom with vertical slits on top and vertical slits on the right for the bottom with horizontal slits on top, vertical dots are seen when the slide has horizontal dots and horizontal dots are seen when the slide has vertical dots.

2. distance between line patterns on green slide: 4.5 cm, 45000 micrometers, 45000000 nm
4. green light measures smaller things because it has a smaller wavelength (ROYGBIV)
