    In a double-slit arrangement the slits are separated by a distance equal to 100 times the wavelength of the light passing through the slits. (a) What is the angular separation in radians between the central maximum and an adjacent maximum? (b) What is the distance between these maxima on a screen 50.0 cm from the slits?

    The separation between slits d = 100*lembda

    A) If the separation between the slits and screen ...

    Solution Summary

    For this solution, we find the answers to part a and b using optics formulas including: separation between slits d = 100*lembda and separation of maximas = fringe width beta = lembda*D/d.
