Diffraction spreading for a flashlight is insignificant compared with other limitations in its optics, such as spherical aberrations in its mirror. To show this, calculate the minimum angular spreading of a flashlight beam that is originally 5.00 cm in diameter with an average wavelength of 600 nm.

the minimum angular separation off a flashlight. So flashlight is given by that 1.22 times Alemdar, divided by D. So 1.22 times Linda, we every six times gentle, about minus seven meters, derided by DVF. Is there a 0.5? Or teachers excuse us there. There had to be 1.46 times 10 to the power minus five radiance.
