The condition for constructive interference is then 2 bright n film tm m n λ  ==  (1) and the condition for destructive interference is 11 2 22 dark n film m n =+  (2) Solving for the order number, m , in equation (1), and substituting into equation (2) gives the film thickness as () 500 nm 313 nm 4 1.20 1 500 nm 750 nm 41 dark film dark bright t n λλ = 24.69 (a) Assuming that n in the figure at the right, Ray 1 undergoes a phase reversal as it reflects at point A, but Ray 2 has no reversal as it reflects at B. Therefore, the condition for
