  3. Calculate the wavelength of light that has its third minimum at an angle of 30.0º when falling on double slits separated by 3.00 µm.

  4. Figure 27.55 shows the central part of the interference pattern for a pure wavelength of red light projected onto a double slit. The pattern is actually a combination of single slit and double slit interference. Note that the bright spots are evenly spaced. Is this a double slit or single slit characteristic? Note that some of the bright spots are dim on either side of the center. Is this a single slit or double slit characteristic? Which is smaller, the slit width or the separation between slits? Explain your responses.

  8. What are the advantages of a diffraction grating over a prism in dispersing light for spectral analysis?

    Found on Page 995
  9. What is the highest-order maximum for 400-nm light falling on double slits separated by 25.0 µm?

    Found on Page 997
  10. Can the lines in a diffraction grating be too close together to be useful as a spectroscopic tool for visible light? If so, what type of EM radiation would the grating be suitable for? Explain.
