Problem 17.11

Light from a helium-neon laser (wavelenght = 633 nm) is used to illuminate two narrow slits. The interference pattern is observed on a screen 3.0 m behind the slits. Thirteen bright fringes are seen, spanning a distance of 52 mm .


Part A -

What is the spacing (in mm ) between the slits?
