Why are interference fringes noticeable only for a thin film like a soap bubble and not for a thick piece of glass?
Step 1 of 1 a
The light rays incident on the surface of a transparent film reflects form the upper surface and the lower surface. The reflected rays have phase difference because the one reflected from the lower surface travels 2d longer than the one reflected from the upper one.
This phase difference causes destructive and constrictive interference.
