In a double-slit experiment, light with a wavelength λ passes through a double-slit and forms an interference pattern on the screen at a distance L from the slits. What statement is true for the resulting interference pattern if the frequency of the light increases?

OPTIONS:

The distance between maxima stays the same.T

he distance between maxima increases.

The distance between maxima decreases.

Not enough information given.

Fringe width, (b)is the distance between two consecutive maximas or minima.

The expression for the fringe width is given by;

**b = kL/d ..**...........eqn 1

where k= wavelength of the light used

L= distance of the screen from the slits

d = seperation between the slits.

Also, wavelength (k) and frequency (v) are related by the expression

c= vk .........eqn 2

where c is the velocity of light

or we can rearrange the equation 2 as

k = c/v .........eqn 3

Eqn 3 indicats that k is inversely proportional to v. i.e wavelength of light is inversely prportional to the frequency.

i.e More the frequency, lesser would be the wavelength and vice versa.

**Using value of k from eqn 3 in eqn 1 , we
get**

**b = cL/vd**

**this equation clearly states that fringe width b is also
inversely proportional to frequency v of the light.**

*Hence, if we increase the frequency, fringe width
would decrease i.e distance between two consecutive maxima would
decrease.*

Light of unknown wavelength passes through a double slit,
yielding both double slit and diffraction patterns on a screen that
is 1 m away from the slits. You see that the 9th double-slit
maximum coincides with the 2nd single-slit diffraction minimum. You
also observe that the first diffraction minimum is located 3 cm
from the central axis on the screen.

1) Upon passing monochromatic light (‘one color’ or one
wavelength) through a double-slit, a series of equally-spaced
bright fringes appears on a screen. This spacing of the fringes
depends on the wavelength of the monochromatic light, the distance
to the screen, and the spacing between these two slits.
Upon passing this same monochromatic light through this same
double-slit with the same distance to the screen, only now with the
entire apparatus completely submerged in water, does the fringe
spacing increase,...

all your intermediate calculations):
