Interference 35-11 The second bright ring is when 1: m = 7 4 (2(1) 1) (5.80 10 m) (0.952 m) 9.10 10 m 0.910 mm. 2 r ≈= × = So the diameter of the second bright ring is 1.82 mm. EVALUATE: The diameter of the th m ring is proportional to 21 m + , so the rings get closer together as m increases. This agrees with Figure 35.17b in the textbook. 35.40. IDENTIFY: As found in Problem 35.39, the radius of the th m bright ring is (2 1) , 2 mR r λ + for . R " SET UP: Introducing a liquid between the lens and the plate just changes the wavelength from to n , where n is the refractive index of the liquid. EXECUTE: 1) 0.850 mm ( ) 0.737 mm. 2 1.33 r rn n n + = = EVALUATE: The refractive index of the water is less than that of the glass plate, so the phase changes on reflection are the same as when air is in the space. 35.41. IDENTIFY: The liquid alters the wavelength of the light and that affects the locations of the interference minima. SET UP: The interference minima are located by 1 2 sin ( ) dm θ =+ . For a liquid with refractive index n , air liq n = . EXECUTE: 1 2 () sin constant m d + == , so liq air air liq sin sin = . liq air air air sin sin / n λλ = and air liq sin sin35.20 1.730 sin sin19.46 n = ° ° . EVALUATE: In the liquid the wavelength is shorter and 1 2 sin ( ) m d gives a smaller than in air, for the same m . 35.42. IDENTIFY: As the brass is heated, thermal expansion will cause the two slits to move farther apart. SET UP: For destructive interference, d sin = /2. The change in separation due to thermal expansion is dw = α w 0 dT , where w is the distance between the slits. EXECUTE: The first dark fringe is at d sin = /2 sin = /2 d. Call d w for these calculations to avoid confusion with the differential. sin = /2 w Taking differentials gives d (sin ) = d ( /2 w ) and cos d = /2 dw/w 2 . For thermal expansion, dw = w 0 dT , which gives 0 2 00 cos 22 wdT dT d ww αλ θθ =− . Solving for d gives 2c o s dT d w λα . Get : w 0 sin 0 = /2 = 2 w 0 sin 0 . Substituting this quantity into the equation for d gives 0 2s i n tan o s wd T dd T w θα . 51 tan(32.5 )(2.0 10 K )(115 K) 0.001465 rad 0.084 d −− × °° The minus sign tells us that the dark fringes move closer together. EVALUATE: We can also see that the dark fringes move closer together because sin is proportional to 1/ d , so as d increases due to expansion, decreases. 35.43. IDENTIFY: Both frequencies will interfere constructively when the path difference from both of them is an integral number of wavelengths. SET UP: Constructive interference occurs when sin = m / d . EXECUTE: First find the two wavelengths. 1 = v/f 1 = (344 m/s)/(900 Hz) = 0.3822 m 2 = v/f 2 = (344 m/s)/(1200 Hz) = 0.2867 m To interfere constructively at the same angle, the angles must be the same, and hence the sines of the angles must be equal. Each sine is of the form sin = m / d , so we can equate the sines to get m 1 1 / d = m 2 2/ d m 1 (0.3822 m) = m 2 (0.2867 m) m 2 = 4/3 m 1
