Light Refraction

Light through a filter. Find the thickness of the transparent dielectric.

Astronomers observe the chromosphere of the Sun with a filter that passes the red hydrogen spectral line of wavelength 656.3 nm. The filter consists of a transparent dielectric of thickness d held between two partially aluminized glass plates. The filter is held at a constant temperature. a) Find the minimum value of d that p
