    Considering Otto Wiener's experiment in monochromatic light of wavelength 550nm, if the film plane is angle at 1 degree to the reflecting surface, determine the number of bright bands per centimeter that will appear on it.

    Answer:

    In this experiment the light sensitive film is formed before the mercury polish, forming the mirror. If the film is making angle  with the mirror then a wedge shaped air film is formed ...

    Solution Summary

    Interference of light through wedge shaped film, number of fringe per unit length is calculated.
