Solutions to Exercises & Problems
1E
The condition for a minimum in a single-slit diraction pattern is given by Eq. 37-3:
a sin = m, where a is the slit width, is the wavelength, and m is an integer. Solve for
: = a sin =m = (0:022 mm)(sin 1:8 )=1 = 6:9 10 3 mm = 690 nm:
2E
(a) = sin 1 (1:50 cm=2:00 m) = 0:430 :
(b) For the mth diraction minimum a sin = m: Solve for a:
m = 2(441 nm) = 0:118 mm :
a = sin
sin 0:430
3E
Use a sin = m. The angle is measured from the forward direction, so for the situation
described in the problem it is 0:60 , for m = 1. Thus
m = 633 10 9 m = 6:04 10 5 m :
a = sin
sin 0:60
4E
(a) Use a sin = m. For = a and m = 1 the angle is the same as for = b and
m = 2. Thus a = 2b .
(b) Let ma be the integer associated with a minimum in the pattern produced by light with
wavelength a and let mb be the integer associated with a minimum in the pattern produced
by light with wavelength b . A minimum in one pattern coincides with a minimum in the
other if they occur at the same angle. This means ma a = mb b . Since a = 2b , the
minima coincide if 2ma = mb . Thus every other minimum of the b pattern coincides with
a minimum of the a pattern.

(a) A plane wave is incident on the lens so it is brought to focus in the focal plane of the
lens, a distance of 70 cm from the lens.
(b) Waves leaving the lens at an angle to the forward direction interfere to produce an
intensity minimum if a sin = m, where a is the slit width, is the wavelength, and m
is an integer. The distance on the screen from the center of the pattern to the minimum
is given by y = D tan , where D is the distance from the lens to the screen. For the
conditions of this problem

This means = 1:47510 3 rad and y = (7010 2 m) tan(1:47510 3 rad) = 1:010 3 m.

The condition for a minimum of intensity in a single-slit diraction pattern is a sin = m,

If D is the distance from the slit to the screen, the distance on the screen from the center
of the pattern to the minimum is y1 = D tan 1 = (3:00 m) tan(5:89 10 4 rad) = 1:767 10 3 m.

2(589 10 9 m) = 1:178 10 3 rad :

The distance from the pattern center to the minimum is y2 = D tan 2 = (3:00 m) tan(1:178
10 3 rad) = 3:534 10 3 m. The separation of the two minima is y = y2 y1 =

If you divide the original slit into N strips and represent the light from each strip, when it
reaches the screen, by a phasor, then at the central maximum in the diraction pattern you
add N phasors, all in the same direction and each with the same amplitude. The intensity
there is proportional to N 2 . If you double the slit width you need 2N phasors if they are
each to have the amplitude of the phasors you used for the narrow slit. The intensity at
the central maximum is proportional to (2N )2 and is therefore 4 times the intensity for
the narrow slit. The energy reaching the screen per unit time, however, is only twice the
energy reaching it per unit time when the narrow slit is in place. The energy is simply
redistributed. For example, the central peak is now half as wide and the integral of the
intensity over the peak is only twice the analogous integral for the narrow slit.
14P
Think of the Huygens' explanation of diraction phenomenon. When A is in place only
the Huygens' wavelets that pass through the hole get to point P . Suppose they produce a
resultant electric eld EA . When B is in place the light that was blocked by A gets to P
and the light that passed through the hole in A is blocked. Suppose the electric eld at P
is now EB . The sum EA + EB is the resultant of all waves that get to P when neither A
nor B are present. Since P is in the geometric shadow this is zero. Thus EA = EB and
since the intensity is proportional to the square of the electric eld, the intensity at P is
the same when A is present as when B is present.

I = Im 2 ;
where = (a=) sin , a is the slit width and is the wavelength. The angle is measured
from the forward direction. You want I = Im =2, so
sin2 = 21 2 :
(b) Evaluate sin2 and 2 =2 for = 1:39 rad and compare the results. To be sure that
1:39 rad is closer to the correct value for than any other value with 3 signicant digits,
you should also try 1:385 rad and 1:395 rad.

(a) The intensity for a single-slit diraction pattern is given by

The derivative vanishes if 6= 0 but sin = 0. This yields = m, where m is an integer.
Except for m = 0 these are the intensity minima: I = 0 for = m.
The derivative also vanishes for cos sin = 0. This condition can be written tan = .
These are the maxima.

Since the slit width is much less than the wavelength of the light, the central peak of the
single-slit diraction pattern is spread across the screen and the diraction envelope can
be ignored. Consider 3 waves, one from each slit. Since the slits are evenly spaced the
phase dierence for waves from the rst and second slits is the same as the phase dierence
for waves from the second and third slits. The electric elds of the waves at the screen
can be written E1 = E0 sin(!t), E2 = E0 sin(!t + ), and E3 = E0 sin(!t + 2), where
= (2d=) sin . Here d is the separation of adjacent slits and is the wavelength.
The phasor diagram is shown to the right. It yields
E3
E = E0 cos + E0 + E0 cos = E0 (1 + 2 cos )
for the amplitude of the resultant wave. Since the intensity of a wave is proportional to the square of the
electric eld, we may write I = AE02 (1+2 cos )2 , where
A is a constant of proportionality. If Im is the intensity at the center of the pattern, for which = 0, then
Im = 9AE02 . Take A to be Im =9E02 and obtain

(a) Use the Rayleigh criteria. To resolve two point sources the central maximum of the
diraction pattern of one must lie at or beyond the rst minimum of the diraction pattern
of the other. This means the angular separation of the sources must be at least R =
1:22=d, where is the wavelength and d is the diameter of the aperture. For the headlights

(a) Use Rayleigh's criterion: two objects can be resolved if their angular separation at the
observer is greater than R = 1:22=d, where is the wavelength of the light and d is
the diameter of the aperture (the eye or mirror). If L is the distance from the observer
to the objects then the smallest separation D they can have and still be resolvable is
D = L tan R LR , where R is measured in radians. The small angle approximation
tan R R was made. Thus

Bright interference fringes occur at angles given by d sin = m, where d is the slit
separation, is the wavelength, and m is an integer. For the slits of this problem d = 11a=2,
so a sin = 2m=11. The rst minimum of the diraction pattern occurs at the angle 1
given by a sin 1 = and the second occurs at the angle 2 given by a sin 2 = 2, where a
is the slit width. You want to count the values of m for which 1 < < 2 , or what is the
same, the values of m for which sin 1 < sin < sin 2 . This means 1 < (2m=11) < 2. The
values are m = 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. There are ve bright fringes in all.
38E
The number is 2(d=a) 1 = 2(2a=a) 1 = 3:
39E
It is clear from Eq. 37-5 that for a single slit of width 2a the diraction pattern is given by
I = Im
sin(2) ;

where = a sin =. Now, if we put d = a in Eq. 37-19, then = = a sin =, and

where the trigonometric identity sin(2) = 2 sin cos was used. Thus Eq. 37-19 indeed
reduces to the diraction pattern for a single slit of width 2a.
40P
(a) Let the location of the fourth bright fringe coincide with the rst minimum of diraction
pattern: sin = 4=d = =a, or d = 4a.
(b) Any bright fringe which happens to be at the same location with a diraction minimum
will vanish. So let sin = m1 =d = m2 =a = m1 =4a = m2 =a, or m1 = 4m2 where
m2 = 1; 2; 3; : The fringes missing are thus the 4th, the 8th, the 12th, , i.e., every
fourth fringe is missing.

(a) The angular positions of the bright interference fringes are given by d sin = m,
where d is the slit separation, is the wavelength, and m is an integer. The rst diraction
minimum occurs at the angle 1 given by a sin 1 = , where a is the slit width. The
diraction peak extends from 1 to +1 , so you want to count the number of values of
m for which 1 < < +1 , or what is the same, the number of values of m for which
sin 1 < sin < + sin 1 . This means 1=a < m=d < 1=a or d=a < m < +d=a. Now
d=a = (0:150 10 3 m)=(30:0 10 6 m) = 5:00, so the values of m are m = 4, 3, 2,
1, 0, +1, +2, +3, and +4. There are nine fringes.
(b) The intensity at the screen is given by
I = Im
cos2 sin 2
;
where = (a=) sin , = (d=) sin , and Im is the intensity at the center of the pattern.
For the third bright interference fringe d sin = 3, so = 3 rad and cos2 = 1. Similarly,
= 3a=d = 3=5:00 = 0:600 rad and (sin )2 =2 = (sin 0:600)2 =(0:600)2 = 0:255.
The intensity ratio is I=Im = 0:255.
43P
(a) The rst minimum of the diraction pattern is at 5:00 so a = = sin = 0:440 m=
sin 5:00 = 5:05 m.
(b) Since the fourth bright fringe is missing d = 4a = 4(5:05 m) = 20:2 m:
(c) For the m = 1 bright fringe
= (5:05 m) sin 1:25 = 0:787 rad ;

As the phase dierence is varied from zero to , both the intensity prole of the diraction and the location of the interference maximum change. At = , the original central

(b) The colors are orange (for 1 = 625 nm), blue-green (for 2 = 500 nm), and violet (for

The angular location of the mth order diraction maximum is given by m = d sin . To
be able to observe the fth-order one we must let sin jm=5 = 5=d < 1, or

So all wavelengths shorter than 635 nm can be used.

The ruling separation is d = 1=(400 mm 1 ) = 2:5 10 3 mm. Diraction lines occur at
angles such that d sin = m, where is the wavelength and m is an integer. Notice that
for a given order the line associated with a long wavelength is produced at a greater angle
than the line associated with a shorter wavelength. Take to be the longest wavelength
in the visible spectrum (700 nm) and nd the greatest integer value of m such that is
less than 90 . That is, nd the greatest integer value of m for which m < d. Since
d= = (2:5 10 6 m)=(700 10 9 m) = 3:57 that value is m = 3. There are 3 complete
orders on each side of the m = 0 order. The second and third orders overlap (see 59P).

(a) Maxima of a two-slit interference pattern occur at angles given by d sin = m,
where d is the slit separation, is the wavelength, and m is an integer. The two lines
are adjacent so their order numbers dier by unity. Let m be the order number for the
line with sin = 0:2 and m + 1 be the order number for the line with sin = 0:3. Then
0:2d = m and 0:3d = (m + 1). Subtract the rst equation from the second to obtain
0:1d = , or d = =0:1 = (600 10 9 m)=0:1 = 6:0 10 6 m.
(b) Minima of the single-slit diraction pattern occur at angles given by a sin = m,
where a is the slit width. Since the fourth order interference maximum is missing it must
fall at one of these angles. If a is the smallest slit width for which this order is missing
the angle must be given by a sin = . It is also given by d sin = 4, so a = d=4 =
(6:0 10 6 m)=4 = 1:5 10 6 m.
(c) First set = 90 and nd the largest value of m for which m < d sin . This is the
highest order that is diracted toward the screen. The condition is the same as m < d=
and since d= = (6:0 10 6 m)=(600 10 9 m) = 10:0, the highest order seen is the m = 9
order. The fourth and eighth orders are missing so the observable orders are m = 0, 1, 2,
3, 5, 6, 7, and 9.
53P
(a) For the maximum with the greatest value of m (= M ) we have M = a sin < d,

From d sin = m we see that if two spectral lines (labeled 1 and 2, respectively) overlap,
meaning they share the same value of , then m1 1 = m2 2 . For m1 = 2 and m2 = 3 this
becomes
1 = m2 = 3 :
2 m1 2
Since 400 nm < 2 < 1 < 700 nm we can always nd suitable values of 1 and 2 which
satisfy this condition. For example 1 = 600 nm, and 2 = 400 nm, or 1 = 660 nm and
2 = 440 nm, etc. So these two spectra always overlap, regardless of the value of d.
60P
In this case a = d=2, and the formula for the locations of the mth diraction minimum,
m = a sin = (d=2) sin , may be re-written as (2m) = d sin , which we recognize as
the formula for the location of the (2m)-th maximum of interference. Thus all the (2m)-th
(i.e., even) orders of maxima will be eliminated (exept m = 0).

At the locationpof the hole sin 50 mm=30 cm = 0:164, and from m = d sin we nd
sin 5:0 cm= (30 cm)2 + (5:0 cm)2 = 0:164; so
= (1:00 106 nm=350)(0:164) = 470 nm :
m = d sin
Since for white light > 400 nm the only integer m allowed here is m = 1. At one edge of

The derivation is similar to that used to obtain Eq. 37-27. At the rst minimum beyond
the mth principal maximum two waves from adjacent slits have a phase dierence of =

then the dierence in path length is also given by L = d sin(m + ). Thus d sin(m +
hw ) = m + (=N ). Use the trigonometric identity sin(m + hw ) = sin m cos hw +
cos m sin hw . Since hw is small, we may approximate sin hw by hw in radians
and cos hw by unity. Thus d sin m + d hw cos m = m + (=N ). Use the condition
d sin m = m to obtain d hw cos m = =N and
