Question - 8

In a double slit interference experiment,the distance between the slits is 0.05 cm and screen is 2m away from the slits. the wavelength of lights is \(8.0\times { 10 }^{ -5 }\)cm.The distance between successive fringes is

  • A 0.24 cm
  • B 0.16 cm
  • C 0.32 cm
  • D 0.48 cm

Question - 9

The young's double slit experiment is performed with blue and green light of wavelengths 4360 \(\mathring { A } \) and 5460 \(\mathring { A } \) respectively.If y is the distance of 5th maximum from the central one, then

  • A y (blue)=y (green)
  • B y (blue)< y (green)
  • C y (blue) < y (green)
  • D y (blue) / y (green)=5460/4360

Question - 10

In the young's double slit experiment, the two slits \({S}_{1}\)and \({S}_{2}\)are not equidistant from the monochromatic light source slit S which is illuminating them.Then, the central fringe is

  • A always bright
  • B always dark
  • C uniformly illuminated
  • D either dark or bright depending on the position of S.
