The interference pattern of a He-Ne laser light $\left(\lambda =632.9\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\text{nm}\right)$ passing through two slits 0.031 mm apart is projected on a screen 10.0 m away. Determine the distance between the adjacent bright fringes.

Young’s double-slit experiment is performed immersed in water ( $n=1.333$ ). The light source is a He-Ne laser, $\lambda =632.9\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\text{nm}$ in vacuum. (a) What is the wavelength of this light in water? (b) What is the angle for the third order maximum for two slits separated by 0.100 mm.

A double-slit experiment is to be set up so that the bright fringes appear 1.27 cm apart on a screen 2.13 m away from the two slits. The light source was wavelength 500 nm. What should be the separation between the two slits?

0.0839 mm

An effect analogous to two-slit interference can occur with sound waves, instead of light. In an open field, two speakers placed 1.30 m apart are powered by a single-function generator producing sine waves at 1200-Hz frequency. A student walks along a line 12.5 m away and parallel to the line between the speakers. She hears an alternating pattern of loud and quiet, due to constructive and destructive interference. What is (a) the wavelength of this sound and (b) the distance between the central maximum and the first maximum (loud) position along this line?

A hydrogen gas discharge lamp emits visible light at four wavelengths, $\lambda =$ 410, 434, 486, and 656 nm. (a) If light from this lamp falls on a N slits separated by 0.025 mm, how far from the central maximum are the third maxima when viewed on a screen 2.0 m from the slits? (b) By what distance are the second and third maxima separated for $l=486\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\text{nm}$ ?

a. 9.8, 10.4, 11.7, and 15.7 cm; b. 3.9 cm

Monochromatic light of frequency $5.5\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}×\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}{10}^{14}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\text{Hz}$ falls on 10 slits separated by 0.020 mm. What is the separation between the first and third maxima on a screen that is 2.0 m from the slits?

Eight slits equally separated by 0.149 mm is uniformly illuminated by a monochromatic light at $\lambda =523\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\text{nm}$ . What is the width of the central principal maximum on a screen 2.35 m away?

Eight slits equally separated by 0.149 mm is uniformly illuminated by a monochromatic light at $\lambda =523\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\text{nm}$ . What is the intensity of a secondary maxima compared to that of the principal maxima?

A transparent film of thickness 250 nm and index of refraction of 1.40 is surrounded by air. What wavelength in a beam of white light at near-normal incidence to the film undergoes destructive interference when reflected?

700 nm

An intensity minimum is found for 450 nm light transmitted through a transparent film $\left(n=1.20\right)$ in air. (a) What is minimum thickness of the film? (b) If this wavelength is the longest for which the intensity minimum occurs, what are the next three lower values of $\lambda$ for which this happens?

A thin film with $n=1.32$ is surrounded by air. What is the minimum thickness of this film such that the reflection of normally incident light with $\lambda =500\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\text{nm}$ is minimized?

A round diaphragm S with diameter of d = 0.05 is used as light source in Michelson interferometer shown on the picture. The diaphragm is illuminated by parallel beam of monochromatic light with wavelength of λ = 0.6 μm. The distances are A B = 30, A C = 10 . The interference picture is in the form of concentric circles and is observed on the screen placed in the focal plane of the lens. Estimate the number of interference rings m observed near the main diffractive maximum.

explain cavendish experiment to determine the value of gravitational concept.
Cavendish Experiment to Measure Gravitational Constant. ... This experiment used a torsion balance device to attract lead balls together, measuring the torque on a wire and equating it to the gravitational force between the balls. Then by a complex derivation, the value of G was determined.

there are two correct answers depending on whether air resistance is considered. none of those answers have acceleration increasing.
Michael
Acceleration is the change in velocity over time, hence it's the derivative of the velocity with respect to time. So this case would depend on the velocity. More specifically the change in velocity in the system.

40 cm into change mm
40cm=40.0×10^-2m =400.0×10^-3m =400mm. that cap(^) I have used above is to the power.

i.e. 10to the power -2 in the first line and 10 to the power -3 in the the second line.

there is mistake in my first msg correction is 40cm=40.0×10^-2m =400.0×10^-3m =400mm. sorry for the mistake friends.
Prema
40cm=40.0×10^-2m =400.0×10^-3m =400mm.
