Homework #4: Wave/particle duality Phys320 – Spring 2007 (Reshchikov) p. 1 Problem 1 A beam of positrons (positron antielectron) travels at 0.001% the speed of light and impinges on a slit that is 1 µ m wide. Use modern units to find the angle θ between the center line and 3 rd minimum of the resulting diffraction pattern. How far away would you locate a detector so that the 3 rd minimum is spaced 20 cm from the center line?

If the angle between the central maximum of the resulting interference pattern and the next maximum is to be 3º, what should d be? With E K = 0.5 eV, the electrons have wavelength 26 1240 eV nm 1.735 nm.
