394 Interference of Light Waves P37.38 The condition for bright fringes is 2 2 t n m n += λλ m = 123 ,,, . From the sketch, observe that tR R Rr R r R =− ≈− + F H G I K J = F H G I K J = 11 1 22 2 2 2 2 cos θ af . The condition for a bright fringe becomes r R m n 2 1 2 F H G I K J λ . Thus, for fixed m and , nr 2 = constant . R r t FIG. P37.38 Therefore, nr n r fi liquid air = and n liquid cm cm == 100 150 131 2 2 . . . . a f . P37.39 For destructive interference in the air, 2 tm = . For 30 dark fringes, including the one where the plates meet, t × 29 600 2 870 10 6 nm m a f .. Therefore, the radius of the wire is r t = 2 870 435 . . m 2 m µ . FIG. P37.39 P37.40 For total darkness, we want destructive interference for reflected light for both 400 nm and 600 nm. With phase reversal at just one reflecting surface, the condition for destructive interference is
