9. (a) The rest length L0 = 130 m of the spaceship and its length L as measured by the
timing station are related by Eq. 37-13. Therefore,

(b) The time interval for the passage of the spaceship is

(b) The wavelength of the blue light is shorter so Lmax 1 will be larger.
20. Using the no
4. (a) Eq. 36-3 and Eq. 36-12 imply smaller angles for diffraction for smaller wavelengths.
This suggests that diffraction effects in general would decrease.
(b) Using Eq. 36-3 with m = 1 and solving for 2 (the angular width of the central

(b) Since y1 = D tan 1 (see Fig. 35-10(a), we obtain
y1 = (500 mm) tan (0.010 rad) = 5.0 mm.
The separation is y = y

We take medium 1 to be the vacuum, with n1 = 1 and 1 = 32.0. Medium 2 is the glass,
