Question

Which of the following can spread out the diffraction pattern formed by a beam of monochromatic light, on a screen behind a diffraction grating?

a) Decrease the distance between the diffraction grating and the screen.

b) Decrease the number of slits on the diffraction grating.

c) Decrease the frequency of the light.

d) Increase the separation between two neighboring slits on the
diffraction grating.

e) none of the above

Answer #1

The concept used is of fringe width which tell us the spread out the diffraction pattern formed by light , so if the firngw width increase then spread also increases , as frequency decreases wavelength increases means fringe width increases which means spread increases , after applying this concept i deduced these results.

Monochromatic light of wavelength λ1 is sent
through two closely-spaced slits separated by a distance
d1 = 1.8 mm. A resulting interference pattern
is shown on a screen L1 away. Another
monochromatic light source, this one of wavelength
λ2, is sent through a diffraction grating
toward the same screen, resulting in a second interference pattern.
The diffraction grating is a distance L2 from
the screen and has 400 lines per mm etched onto it.
A) Assume that L1 = L2...

24.73 . LIght is incident on a diffraction grating with 8600
lines/cm , and the pattern is viewed on a screen 2.5 m from the
grating. The incident light beam consists of two wavelengths,
4.5×10?7 m and 6.9×10?7 m .
Part A Calculate the linear distance between the first-order
bright fringes of these two wavelengths on the screen.

Monochromatic light of wavelength 588 nm is incident upon a
diffraction grating that contains 8500 lines spread out over a
distance of 1.5 cm.
a) What is the line spacing of the grating?
b) At what angle does the 2nd principle maximum occur?
c) If the screen is located a distance of 1.55 m from the
grating, what is the linear distance on
the screen that separates the central maximum with the 2nd order
principle maximum?

A
diffraction grating with spacing d = 2000 nm produces an
interference pattern on a screen at a distance of 32 cm. If the
first and second maxima produced are located at y = 3 cm, and 5 cm
respectively, what is the wavelength of the light? Is this light
visible? What does that say about the screen in this apparatus? If
the frequency of the light used in question 1 above is decreased,
will the positions of the maxima...

1. A single slit produces a diffraction pattern on a
distant screen. Show that the separation distance between the two
minima on either side of the central maximum is twice as large as
the separation distance between all the other neighbouring minima.
Compare your result to the corresponding case for a double-slit
pattern with very narrow slits. (Hint: use the formula for
intensity of single slit diffraction)

C)
is continuous and contains absorption lines.
D)
