Chapt. 36 Interference 277
a) Draw a diagram of the system.
b) Solve for
θ
′
.
c) For the small angle approximation, de±ne an new angle
θ
′′
(in terms of both
θ
′
and
θ
′′
)
such that we you have a formula for
θ
′′
that exactly resembles the formula for
θ
in the
exact alignment case.
d) Why don’t we ever worry about disalignment in undergraduate experiments?
