There are three sources of uncertainty in the determination of the wavelength.
1. What sources of uncertainty go into calculating the wavelength of the laser light? Report their values and how you estimated them. Which of these contributes the most to the final uncertainty on the wavelength?
2. Calculate the uncertainty of the wavelength for the red and green lasers. Are these wavelengths consistent with the wavelengths labeled on the lasers?
