The Fringes of the Fleet is a booklet written in 1915 by Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936). The booklet contains essays and poems about nautical subjects in World War I.
It is also the title of a song-cycle written in 1917 with music by the English composer Edward Elgar and lyrics from poems in Kipling's booklet.
Hello! I am building a bow-tie cavity and for some reason the peaks I see when scanning the laser frequency are extremely wide and with a very long tail to the right. However, if I put a 50 Ohm resistance in between the BNC cable from the diode and the oscilloscope (using a BNC T connector) the...

When looking at a diffraction pattern made by two slits, and trying to calculate wavelength, what do we count as fringes? For example, in this picture are there five total fringes or, like, 25?
I've been trying to set up a lab for my high school physics 2 class and the math says that every...
I think the answer is E because each bright fringe is differed by a wavelength, in other words, one wavelength is equal to 2π.
(For example, the first bright fringe is d * Δy/L = 1*λ.)

It's straightforward to calculate the wavelength of the balls which is 20,000m. I said that because this is the case and then the pattern must not be a an interference pattern as with electrons.
The second question relies on the formula d = n(lambda)/2. Setting n = 1 for two golf balls will...

Hi,
Is there an equation that gives you the number of interference fringes if you know the light wave length, size and separation of the slits, and length from the slits to the screen?
The conventional Young double slit experiment displays the interference fringes with the first intensity maxima at the center of the detection screen ('center' means aligned with the center between two slits of equal aperture). These are simply called 'fringes'. However, I'm wondering if and how...

The first one is why the bright fringes get dimmer as you get further from the central/brightest spot. My theory, after looking in the two books I have, is that each single slit decreases...

Since 2 splitted beams meet at ONE spot later on, we have just one beam which flows to the detector, therefore I expect to see just one light spot, where the BRIGHTNESS is changing depending on at which phase 2 beams meet. Pattern with fringes happens when we have multiple sources, like Young's...

Hi all
I am looking for the intensity of the fringes on the screen behind two slits with a given width.
I thought it would be easy to find with google but no.
just to be clear, this is single slit diffraction of light
if the slit width is made narrower, this would lead to more diffraction, so the fringe width would be wider, yeah?
but I'm a bit confused, because is this basically the same as saying the fringe separation would be wider?
