Exam 3 Solutions WW 1. In the equation sinO = l,/w for single-slit diffraction, "0" is: A) the ansle to the first minimum B) the angle to the second maximum C) the phase angle between the extreme rays D) Nn where N is an integer E) (N + ll?)n where N is an integer "0" is the angle to the first minimum for single slit diffraction. 72Vo correct 2.Two stars that are closetogether are photographed through a telescope. The black and white film is equally sensitive to all colors. Which situation would result in the most clearly separated images of the stars? A) small lens, red stars B) small lens, blue stars C) large lens, red stars D) larse lens. blue stars E) large lens, one star red and the other blue The resolving power increases as the diameter increases and as the wavelength decreases. Blue is the shortest wavelength. 39Vo correct 3. 600-nm light is incident on a gratingwith a ruling separation of 1.7x10-0n'. The first order line occurs at a diffraction angle of: A ) 0 B) 10' c) 2L' D) 42' E) 45" sinO = m),/d. This is the equationfor a diffraction grating, 95Voconect. 4. A beamof white light (from 400 nm for violet to 700 nm for red) is normally incident on a diffraction grating. It produces two orders on a distant screen. Which diagram below (R = red, V = violet) correctlyshows the pattern on the screen? Page 1 "t, ffi http: / lhep I physics I 26_w99/exam3 sol.htm ir,rr,roo,

What students are saying

• 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.
