The intensity of principal maxima decreases as the order (m) increases due to term. The envelope covering the central maxima in the case of single slit contains all these principal maxima.
The intensity will be maximum when Also intensity will be maximum when , since for these value of , . Thus the values of for which corresponds to principal maxima of order m.
