1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data a certain young's apparatus has slits 0.12 mm apart. the screen is at a distance of 0.80 m. the third bright line to one side of the centre in the resulting interference pattern is displaced 9.0mm from the central line. calculate the wavelength of the light used. What colour is it? 2. Relevant equations wavelength= xd/L d= seperation=0.12mm = 1.2*10^(-4)m x= distance from screen= 0.80m divided by 3 lines aka 2 wavelengths so 0.80m/2=0.40m? L= pattern intereference distance= 9.0mm=0.009m=9.0*10^(-3) 3. The attempt at a solution wavelength = xd/L =(0.40m)(1.2*10^(-4)) DIVIDED BY 9.0*10^(-3) =0.00533333 =5.3*10^(-3)m book answer: 4.5*10^(-7)m Thanks in advance for any help!
