The angle is measured from the forward direction, so for the situation described in the problem, it is 0.60° for m = 1. Thus a m = = × ° = ×λ sin sin . . . 633 10 0 60 6 04 10 9 5 m m 2.

(a) The condition for a minimum in a singleslit diffraction pattern is given by a sin = m λ , where a is the slit width, λ is the wavelength, and m is an integer. For λ = λ a and m = 1, the angle is the same as for λ = λ b and m = 2. Thus λ a = 2 λ b = 2(350 nm) = 700 nm. (b) Let m a be the integer associated with a minimum in the pattern produced by light with wavelength λ a , and let m b be the integer associated with a minimum in the pattern produced by light with wavelength λ b . A minimum in one pattern coincides with a minimum in the other if they occur at the same angle. This means m a λ a = m b λ b . Since λ a = 2 λ b , the minima coincide if 2 m a = m b . Consequently, every other minimum of the λ b pattern coincides with a minimum of the λ a pattern. With m a = 2, we have m b = 4. (c) With m a = 3, we have m b = 6. 4. (a) Eq. 363 and Eq. 3612 imply smaller angles for diffraction for smaller wavelengths. This suggests that diffraction effects in general would decrease. (b) Using Eq. 363 with m = 1 and solving for 2 (the angular width of the central diffraction maximum), we find 1451 CHAPTER 36 2 2 2 050 50 11 1 1 θ = F H G I K J = F H G I K J = °sin sin . . . λ a m m (c) A similar calculation yields 0.23° for λ = 0.010 m. 5. (a) A plane wave is incident on the lens so it is brought to focus in the focal plane of the lens, a distance of 70 cm from the lens. (b) Waves leaving the lens at an angle to the forward direction interfere to produce an intensity minimum if a sin = m λ , where a is the slit width, λ is the wavelength, and m is an integer. The distance on the screen from the center of the pattern to the minimum is given by y = D tan , where D is the distance from the lens to the screen.
