Unformatted text preview: Light Experimental Results p. Huygens Principle Every point on a wave acts like a point source of an outgoing wave. This idea can explain Youngs expt. p. Two-slit interference pattern The data look like this. p. Two-slit interference pattern Typical picture to illustrate the data. p. Two-slit interference pattern Interpretation of the results: L L L Bright Dark Bright Two slits Screen same distance extra distance /2 extra distance from Fig.35-7 d p. Diffraction Grating: Many Slits (a) Two slits (b) Many slits. We can still use m = d sin , but using many slits gives sharper peaks than two slits. p. 1 Discrete and Continuous Spectra p. 1...
