Problem (5 pts) Show your work!!! If I can read it, I will give you partial credit!!! Correct answers without work will NOT get full credit. 2. Microwaves of wavelength λ =2 . 0 cm from a radio transmitter are aimed at two narrow parallel slits in an aluminum plate. The slits are separated by a distance of d =5 . 0 cm as shown in the Fgure. λ v n θ d r 1 r 2 D y The variables are: λ =2 . 0 cm d =5 . 0 cm D =? y =? θ =? m =2 (a) At what angles, θ , at some distance D from the slits, will the second maximum be found? (Note that for this part of the problem, n =1 .) For constructive interference, i.e. a maximum, the equation governing the condition is: d sin θ = Such that: θ = sin

So that the maximum becomes a minimum, a wavelength shift of λ 2 is required. This can be accomplished by adding the diamond block at the upper slit. The number, N , of wavelengths, λ , crossing a length L is: N = L λ = ⇒ L = Nλ = 1 2 (2 cm ) Finally, in order to cause a microwave maximum at the screen to be-come a minimum, the length of the diamond block must be: L = 1 cm . Pretty BIG diamond!!! 2...
