Unformatted text preview: 8. If two emitters are emitting light “in phase” — meaning that their periods are synchronous — and you are an observer, what does the diFerence in your distance to the two objects have to be to see constructive inference? 9. What is the Doppler shift? 10. If a laser that normally emitted at 600 nm is observed to be emitting at 606 nm, how fast (in km/s) would we infer it is moving? Away from us or towards us?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
