Homework problems #2 (Lectures 4/5) 1. The first two dark fringes on one side of the central maximum in a single-slit diffraction pattern are 1.0 mm apart. The wavelength of the light is 610 nm and the screen is 1.0 m from the slit. What is the slit width? 2. Light of wavelength 630 nm is incident upon a single slit with width 0.40 mm. The figure shows the pattern observed on a screen positioned 2.0 m from the slit. Determine the distance from the center of the central bright fringe to the second minimum on one side. 3. The diffraction pattern from a single slit is viewed on a screen. Using blue light ( λ =430 nm), the width of the central maximum is 2.0 cm. (a) Would the central maximum be narrower or wider if red light ( λ =700 nm) is used instead? (b) If the blue light has wavelength 0.43 μ m and the red light has wavelength 0.70 μ m, what is the width of the central maximum when red light is used? 4. Light of wavelength 490 nm is incident on a narrow slit. The diffraction pattern is

If the two 2 nd order maxima (m = 2) are separated by 2.0 cm on the screen in a double-slit experiment, what is the separation of the m = 3 minima? Assume the angle is very small. A. 1.5 cm B. 2.0 cm C. 2.5 cm D. 3.0 cm E. 3.5 cm 6. In a single-slit experiment, light of wavelength 500 nm is used to produce a diffraction pattern on a screen 4.0 m away. If the distance between both 3 rd order minima is 6.0 cm, what is the slit width? A. 2.0 10-4 m B. 1.0 10-4 m C. 4.0 10-4 m D. 0.67 10-4 m E. 0.44 10-4 m 7.
