Problem 3

Young's Double-Slit Interference

Why won’t two small sodium lamps, held close together, produce an interference pattern on a distant screen? What if the sodium lamps were replaced by two laser pointers held close together?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

George Berkeley’s Theory of Idealism ● George Berkeley largely agrees with John Locke and the school of Empiricism, but he still finds some point of contention with John Locke’s argument that made it stray from the original meaning of empiricism. ● Berkeley’s criticism of Locke: ○ The distinction between primary and secondary properties - Locke claimed that changing the shape of an object made it a different object because its primary property was changed. However, Berkeley contends that this is irrelevant because the angle of viewing can be changed, but this does not affect what the object is. Looking at a shape from a different perspective (a literal different perspective) does not change what shape it is. ■ If one disputes that changing the viewing angle does not change the real shape of the object, that means we have not experience the real shape of the object, so according to the basis of empiricism, the object does not exist. ■ Berkeley also claims Locke is wrong to say that shape is observed visually and tactilely; Berkeley says visual shape is different from tactile (touch) shape and the two are associated together through experience. ■ Thus, since all of Locke’s tests of primary properties can be refuted, primary properties do not exist. ● However, if all properties are secondary
