Question

Two narrow slits are illuminated by a laser with a wavelength of
578 nm. The interference pattern on a screen located x = 4.50 m
away shows that the third-order bright fringe is located y = 9.10
cm away from the central bright fringe. Calculate the distance
between the two slits.

First you have to calculate the angle of the maximum. Then you can use the formula for bright fringes of double slits. |

Incorrect. | Tries 2/20 | Previous Tries |

The screen is now moved 2.4 m further away. What is the new distance between the central and the third-order bright fringe?

Answer #1

The expression of the position of the fringe from the center of the central pattern can be expressed as follows,

Y = m** x/d

d = m*x/Y = 3 *578*10^-9 *4.5 /( 9.1*10^-2)

The distance between the two slit is = d = **8.57472527e-5
m**

The screen is now moved 2.4 m

so x' = 2.4 +x = 2.4 +4.5 = 6.9

y' = m** x'/d

= 3*578*10^-9*6.9 /
(**8.57472527e-5) **

**y' =**0.139533333 m

The position of the fringe is = **0.139533333
m**

let me know in a comment if there is any problem or doubts

Two narrow slits are used to produce a double-slit interference
pattern with monochromatic light. The slits are separated by 8 mm,
and the interference pattern is projected onto a screen 7 m away
from the slits. The central bright fringe is at a certain spot on
the screen. Using a ruler with one end placed at the central
fringe, you move along the ruler passing by two more bright fringes
and find that the next bright fringe is 23.5 mm...

A pair of narrow, parallel slits separated by 0.300 mm is

Light of wavelength 670 nm falls on two slits and produces an
interference pattern in which the third-order bright fringe is 45
mm from the central fringe on a screen 3.3 m away.
What is the separation of the two slits?

A pair of slits, separated by 0.1 mm, is illuminated by light
having a wavelength of 500 nm. An interference pattern is observed
on a screen 1.20 m from the slits. (a) Draw the diagram of the

first and second order fringes with respect to the zeroth order
fringe? (c) Determine the position of the first and second...

Light from a laser with a wavelength of 4.2×10-7 m
shines through two slits and forms an interference pattern on a
screen 1.8 m away. You measure the separation between the central
bright fringe and the m=2 bright fringe to be 0.03 m.
1. What is the angle for the m=2 bright fringe (in degrees)?
2. What is the separation between the two slits?
3. What is the angle for the m=1 bright fringe?
4. What is the distance from...

A pair of narrow and parallel slits is separated by a distance
(d) of 0.750mm and are illuminated by a green light with a
