Solving Problems 35 and 36 Physics 002C May 10, 2010 Problem 35 . The change in phase upon rotating the interferometer by 90 o would be double this amount in the most favorable orientation. Using l = 17 m, what would be the maximum expected fractional fringe shift = 2 2 c v l t c t f  for the 30 km/s velocity of Earth going around the sun? Assume that a 590 nm Na light was used and c =299,792,458 m/s. a) 1.34; b) 0.0023; c) 0.57; d) 21.4; e) .0012; What do you know?
