Unformatted text preview: 1413 Chapter 36 1. (a) The condition for a minimum in a singleslit diffraction pattern is given by a sin θ = 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 θ 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. 2. (a) θ = sin –1 (1.50 cm/2.00 m) = 0.430°. (b) For the m th diffraction minimum a sin θ = m λ . We solve for the slit width: a m = = ° = λ sin sin . . . θ 2 441 0 430 0118 nm mm b g 3. The condition for a minimum of a singleslit diffraction pattern is a m sin θ = λ where a is the slit width, λ is the wavelength, and m is an integer. The angle θ 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 . . . θ 633 10 0 60 6 04 10 9 5 m m 4.

(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 θ to the forward direction interfere to produce an intensity minimum if a sin θ = 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 θ , where D is the distance from the lens to the screen.

(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 θ (the angular width of the central diffraction maximum), we find 2 2 2 050 50 11 1 1 θ = F H G I K J = F H G I K J = ° sin sin . . . c a m m (c) A similar calculation yields 0.23° for λ = 0.010 m. 7.
