  1. Mar 4, 2005 #1
    Hi!

    plz help me in the following problem?

    "The electric field at point P due to N slits is,

    E (r, theta, t) = A(r) sin N delta phi/2 cos(kr-wt)
    _____________
    sin delta phi/2

    where delta phi=kdsin (theta) , "d" being the spacing between the adjacent slits. let N=4

    (a) Find two angles on either side of theta=0 at which there is an interference minima.
    (b) Find the spacing between the minima compare to the case of only two slits of separation "d".


    Now i have solve its (a) part but i just cant solve its (b) part.

    Can u plz help me in this plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
