Problem 14Q

For diffraction by a single slit, what is the effect of increasing (a) the slit width, (b) the wavelength?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution

Step 1 of 1

is fringe width

is the distance from the slits to screen

d         is the separation of the slits

is the wavelength of the light.

a) If slits width d increases the fringe width decreases. The number of fringes on the screen increases.

b) If the wavelength increases the fringe width increases. The number of fringes on the screen decreasas.
