Light passes through two slits separated by 6.00 μm. The third-order minimum of the interference pattern produced is at an angle of from a line perpendicular to the slits. What is the wavelength of the light?
At what angle from a line perpendicular to two slits separated by 0.010 mm is the fifth-order maximum of the interference pattern produced by light with a wavelength of 450 nm?
Find the largest wavelength of light falling on two slits separated by 3.20 μm for which there is a first-order maximum when the angle equals .
