a) Young's double-slit experiment is performed with 525-nm light
and a distance of 2.00 m between the slits and the screen. The
tenth interference minimum is observed 7.80 mm from the central
maximum. Determine the spacing of the slits (in mm).

(b) What If? What are the smallest and largest
wavelengths of visible light that will also produce interference
minima at this location? (Give your answers, in nm, to at least
three significant figures. Assume the visible light spectrum...

A physics student demonstrates Young's double-slit experiment
using 632.8 nm light from a HeNe laser. The laser light passes
through two narrowly separated slits that have a spacing of d. The
light produces an interference pattern on a screen that is 4.20
meters in front of the slits. The spacing between the m=2 and m=3
maxima as seen on the screen is 12.0 cm.
Determine the spacing between the slits.
For the situation described above, determine the phase
difference between...

In Young's double-slit experiment, 632.8 nm light from a HeNe
laser passes through the two slits and is projected on a screen. As
expected, a central maximum (constructive interference) is observed
at the center point on the screen. Now, a very thin piece of
plastic with an index of refraction n=1.48 covers one of the the
slits such that the center point on the screen, instead of being a
maximum, is dark.

A double-slit experiment is performed with sodium light
(λ = 589.0 nm). The slits are separated by 1.14 mm, and
the screen is 2.310 m from the slits. Find the separation between
adjacent maxima on the screen.

In a Young's double-slit experiment, light of wavelength
? is sent through the slits. The intensity I at
angle ?0 from the central bright fringe is
lower than the maximum intensity Imax on the
screen. Find an expression for the spacing between the slits in
terms of ?, ?0, I, and
Imax.

A light source emits visible light of two wavelengths:
? = 430 nm and ?' = 510 nm. The source
is used in a double-slit interference experiment in which a viewing
screen is separated from a double-slit source by a length
(L) of 2.80 m and the distance between the two slits
(d) is 0.0450 mm. Find the value of y (in m) on
the screen at which the fringes from the two wavelengths first
coincide.

In a double-slit experiment, the distance between slits is
0.5.0 mm and the slits are 2.0 m from the screen. Two interference
patterns can be seen on the screen: one due to light of wavelength
480 nm, and the other due to light of wavelength 600 nm. What is
the separation on the screen between the second -order (m
= 3) bright fringes of the two interference patterns?(show the ray
diagrams)
