Problem 10P

Problem 10P

In a double-slit experiment, the third-order maximum for light of wavelength 500 nm is located 12 mm from the central bright spot on a screen 1.6 m from the slits. Light of wavelength 650 nm is then projected through the same slits. How far from the central bright spot will the second-order maximum of this light be located?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution

Step 1 of 1

To be able to observe the interference, the two light sources must be coherent. That’s why in young’s experiment, the light coming from one source is allowed to pass through two slits. The two slits becomes two coherent light sources. The headlight of the car are two different light bulbs. Tle sources are not coherent so we cannot observe the interference.
