A parallel beam of light of wavelength 500 nm falls on a narrow slit and the resulting diffraction pattern is observed on a screen 1 m away. It is observed that the first minimum is at a distance of 2.5 mm from the center of the screen. The width of the slit is:

1. 0.43 mm
2. 0.57 mm
3. 0.13 mm
4. 0.2 mm
