    A source of monochromatic light with wavelength lambda is located in point A which is p away from some lens. Virtual image of A is in point A'. Parallel to line AA' screen is D away from it (see fig.). Define lens type (converging or diverging), its focal length f, and derive the expression for estimating the order of the bright fringe that can be expected on the screen at point B. Assume D>>AA'.
