Physics ( light)

posted by .

A student doing Young's experiment measures a distance of 6.0 cm between the first and seventh nodal points on a screen located 3.0 m from the slit plate.
a) if the slit seperation is 220^ -6, what is the wave length of light being used ?
b) what colour is the light ?

  • Physics ( light) -

    x=2k•λ•L/2d= k•λ•L/d,
    Δx=x7-x1 =
    =7•λ•L/d - 1•λ•L/d = 6•λ•L/d,
    λ = Δx•d/6•L =
    =0.06•220•10^-6/6•3=
    =7.3•10^-7 m .
    Red light
