Newton's Ring Experiment

  1. Feb 28, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    t = (2n-1)λ / 4

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm using the above formula. But for some reason, I keep getting the question wrong. I'm not sure if my approach is wrong or what.

    Can anyone suggest me some methods as to how I should approach this problem? Like any different formulas or something?
