Version PREVIEW – HW 5 – Savrasov – (39824) 1 This print-out should have 11 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices beFore answering. Bright Band Separation 001 (part 1 oF 2) 10.0 points Two slits are illuminated by a 533 nm light. The angle between the zeroth-order bright band at the center oF the screen and the Fourth-order bright band is 17 . 4 . IF the screen is 167 cm From the double-slit, how Far apart is this bright band From the central peak? Correct answer: 52 . 3346 cm. Explanation: Basic Concept: y = L tan θ. Solution: y = L tan θ = (167 cm) tan(17 . 4 ) = 52 . 3346 cm . 002 (part 2 oF 2) 10.0 points What is the distance between the two slits? Correct answer: 0 . 00712946 mm. Explanation: Basic Concept: d sin θ = Solution: The Fourth-order bright band oc- curs when m = 4; thereFore, d = sin θ = 4 (533 nm) sin(17 . 4 ) = 0 . 00712946 mm . Double Slit Wave Length 01 003 10.0 points A screen is illuminated by monochromatic light as shown in the fgure below. The distance From the slits to the screen is 5 m . 1 . 9 cm 5 m 0 9 mm S 1 S 2 θ viewing screen What is the wave length iF the distance From the central bright region to the sixth dark Fringe is 1 . 9 cm . Correct answer: 621 . 814 nm. Explanation: Basic Concepts: ±or bright Fringes, we have d sin θ = m λ , and For dark Fringes, we have d sin θ = p m + 1 2 P λ , where m = 0 , ± 1 , ± 2 , ± 3 , ··· . ±rom geometry, we have y = L tan θ . Let : y = 1 . 9 cm = 0 . 019 m , L = 5 m , and d = 0 . 9 mm = 0 . 0009 m . r 2 y L d S 1 S 2 = tan ± y L ² δ d sin θ r 2 - r 1 P O n S 2 Q S 1 90 Q

Version PREVIEW – HW 5 – Savrasov – (39824) 2 r 2 1 d S 1 S 2 θ = tan p y L P δ d sin - n S Q S 90 Q Solution: The angle θ from the slits’ mid- point to the y position on the screen is θ = arctan b y L B = arctan ± (0 . 019 m) (5 m) ² = 0 . 00379998 rad . The wavelength of the light for the sixth dark fringe, m = 5, is λ = d sin θ ³ m + 1 2 ´ = (0 . 0009 m) sin(0 . 00379998 rad) (5 . 5) = 6 . 21814 × 10 7 m = 621 . 814 nm .
