PHY2061 R. D. Field Problems Chapter 41 Page 1 of 4 Chapter 41 Problems Problem 1: Light from a small region of a 100 Watt incandescent bulb passes through a yellow filter and then serves as the source for a Young’s double-slit interference experiment. Which of the following changes would cause the interference pattern to be more closely spaced? (a) Use a blue filter instead of a yellow filter (b) Use a 10 Watt bulb (c) Use a 500 Watt bulb (d) Move the bulb closer to the slits (e) Move the slits closer together Problem 2: The characteristic yellow light of sodium lamps arises from two prominent wavelengths in its spectrum, at approximately 589.0 nm and 589.6 nm , respectively. The light passes through a double slit and falls on a screen 10 m away. If the slits are separated by a distance of 0.01 mm , how far apart are the two second-order bright fringes on the screen ( in mm )? Problem 3: A monochromatic light placed equal distance from two slits a distance d apart produces a central bright spot with a width of 1 cm

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
