Young's Experiment Activity SheetPurpose:The purpose of this activity is to perform Young's experiment in a simulated environment in order todetermine the wavelength of light.Background:In this activity, you will analyze a two-pointsource light interference pattern that isprojected onto a screen. The interface isdivided into three important sections. The topsection represents the experimental set-up as itwould be seen from above. The set-up consistsof a laser beam of unknown wavelength, adouble slit, a screen upon which theinterference pattern is projected. Tap the laserto change the wavelength; tap the double slit to change the slit separation distance; drag the screen tomove it towards and away from the double slit.The middle section represents the front view of the screen. This view allows you to see the actualinterference pattern consisting of bright and dark bands. These bands are the result of the waveinterference of the waves for the waves diffracting through the two slits. The cm-ruler can be used tomeasure the distance between bright bands on the interference pattern.The bottom section allows you to enter your answers for the wavelength of light for the three differentlasers. Once you have measured values of y, d, m, and L, you can calculate the wavelength of light in
