Question

Two lights come from a coherent source. They have the same wavelength of 2 m. In order to produce destructive interference, what is the minimum difference in distance traveled between the two lights? Provide the difference between your height, assuming 5' 5" tall and the answer.

Answer #1

I rate best answer :)
± Fringes from Different Interfering Wavelengths
Coherent light with wavelength 592 nm passes through two very
narrow slits, and the interference pattern is observed on a screen
a distance of 3.00 m from the slits. The first-order bright fringe
is a distance of 4.84 mm from the center of the central bright
fringe.
Part A
For what wavelength of light will the first-order dark fringe
(the first dark fringe next to a central maximum) be...

Two in-phase sources of waves are separated by a distance of
3.68 m. These sources produce identical waves that have a
wavelength of 5.28 m. On the line between them, there are two
places at which the same type of interference occurs. (a) Is it
constructive or destructive interference? (b) and (c) Where are
these places located (the smaller distance should be the answer to
(b))?

Light of wavelength 5.1×10−7m passes through two parallel slits
and falls on a screen 4.5 m away. Adjacent bright bands of the
interference pattern are 1.5 cm apart. The same two slits are next
illuminated by light of a different wavelength, and the fifth-order
minimum (m = 5) for this light occurs at the same point on the
screen as the fourth-order minimum (m = 4) for the previous
light.
What is the wavelength of the second source of light?...

Coherent light that contains two wavelengths, 660 nm and 470 nm
passes through two narrow slits with a separation of 0.26 mm. An
interference pattern is observed on a screen 5.3 m from the
slits.
(a) Sketch the setup
(b) What is the distance between the first order bright fringe
for each wavelength on the screen ?
(c) What is the distance between the first dark fringe for each
wavelength on the screen ?
(d) If electrons with the same...

Two lights spaced a distance 1.5 m apart are emitting light at a
wavelength of 500 nm. How far away from the two lights can a person
still resolve the two lights if the eyes of the person have a pupil
diameter of 2.8 mm?
(A) 8164 m
(B) 4638 m
(C) 2200 m
(D) 5430 m
(E) 3442 m

Two radio antennas separated by d = 302 m as shown in the figure
below simultaneously broadcast identical signals at the same
wavelength. A car travels due north along a straight line at
position x = 1330 m from the center point between the antennas, and
its radio receives the signals. Note: Do not use the small-angle
approximation in this problem.
(a) If the car is at the position of the second maximum after that
at point O when it...

Two slits separated by a distance of d = 0.11mm are located at a
distance of D = 780mm from a screen. The screen is oriented
parallel to the plane of the slits. The slits are illuminated by a
coherent light source with a wavelength of lambda = 524E-6 mm. The
interference pattern shows a peak at the center of the screen (m=0)
and then alternating minima and maxima. 1. [1pt] What is the
pathlength difference between the two waves...

Waves from two slits are in phase at the slits and travel to a
distant screen to produce the
second minimum of the interference pattern. The difference in the
distance traveled by the
waves is:
A. half a wavelength
B. a wavelength
C. three halves of a wavelength
D. two wavelengths
E. five halves of a wavelength
why A is wrong and show me the steps of the correct one
please

An interference pattern is produced by light with a wavelength
560 nm from a distant source incident on two identical parallel
slits separated by a distance (between centers) of 0.550 mm .
a) If the slits are very narrow, what would be the angular
position of the first-order, two-slit, interference maxima?
b)What would be the angular position of the second-order,
two-slit, interference maxima in this case?
c)Let the slits have a width 0.370 mm . In terms of the
intensity...
