Homework Statement


Hi
Please, what fringe pattern would be obtained with a sodium vapour lamp?



Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution


I am guessing that a dominant yellow colour would be obtained. The sodium is almost acting like a monochromatic light and therefore has a particular wavelength. But I am not sure how correct my answer is. Also, what will the sketch look like? Please comment

What is the setup?
You don't have fringes from just a lamp on it's own
