In the diffraction at a single-slit experiment ,how would the intensity of central maxima change if (a)-slit width is halved and (b)-visible light of longer wavelengths is used?

(a) When the slit-width is halved, the size of central maxima gets doubled. Its area becomes four times and hence its intensity would become one-fourth.
(b) On using visible light of longer wavelength, size of central maxima increases. Its area increases and hence its intensity would decrease.
