Solutions to WebAssign HW #5 - Giancoli Ch. 35-2, 3, 8, 25, 31, 36, 53, 54, and 80; (due 2/27) 2. The angle from the central maximum to the first dark fringe is equal to half the width of the central maximum. Using this angle and Eq. 35-1, we calculate the wavelength used.

The angle to the first maximum is about halfway between the angles to the first and second minima. We use Eq. 35-2 to calculate the angular distance to the first and second minima. Then we average these to values to determine the approximate location of the first maximum. Finally, using trigonometry, we set the linear distance equal to the distance to the screen multiplied by the tangent of the angle.
