Quiz6 Problem 1 In a two-slit interference experiment, the path length to a certain point P on the screen differs for one slit in comparison to other by 1 .25 λ . (a) What is the phase difference between the two waves arriving at point P ? (b) Determine the intensity at P , expressed as a function of the maximum intensity I 0 on the screen. Solution : (Ch 34, problem # 20) a) The phase difference is given in Eq. 34-4. We are given the path length difference, dsinθ. . 5 . 2 25 . 1 2 sin 2 π δ θ = = = d b) The intensity is given by Eq. 34-6.

A second source of unknown wavelength produces its second order fringe 1.23 mm closer to the central maximum than the 690-nm light. What is the wavelength of the unknown light? (Hint: Use approximation of small angles s in θ≈ tan θ≈θ ) Solution:
