Hi there, I am curious that Array factor and total gain of array is it the same or not?
if it is not the same how to calculate it.

Thank you for all helps

One more thing, if the separation distance of antenna is 0.65 wavelength, what would be the phase difference between them?

Array factor and gain are different. The Array Factor is a function of the positions of the antennas in the array and the weights used.
for calculation chk this link http://www.antenna-theory.com/arrays/arrayfactor.php
The phase difference will be dependent on angle of incidence or transmitting angle..
phase_diff = 2πdsinθ/λ
