Question

In a Young's double-slit experiment the wavelength of light used is 457 nm (in vacuum), and the separation between the slits is 1.7 × 10-6 m. Determine the angle that locates (a) the dark fringe for which m = 0, (b) the bright fringe for which m = 1, (c) the dark fringe for which m = 1, and (d) the bright fringe for which m = 2.

Answer #1

For dark fringe , d sin theta=(2m + 1) wavelength /2

where d is separation between the slits

For bright fringe , d sin theta= m x wavelength .

(a)For m=0 i.e. first dark fringe, d sin theta=wavelength / 2

sin theta= 457 x 10 ( - 9 ) / 1.70 x 10-6/2 = 106.2x 10 ( -3)

angle=7.72 degrees

(b)For m=1 i.e. first bright fringe,d sin theta=wavelength

angle=15.59 degrees

(c)For m=1 i.e second dark fringe ,d sin theta=3wavelength / 2

angle=23.78 degrees

(d)For m=2 i.e.second bright fringe,d sin theta=2wavelength

angle=32.52 degrees

the second bright fringe is at the angle of 10.2.
If the separation between the double slits is
mm, find the wavelength (in m) of the light source. Express your
answer in scientific notation.

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.
