Homework Help: Wave optics question?

  1. Mar 1, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    a microwave source is placed behind two identical slits, as represented in the diagram above. The slit centers are separated by a distance of 0.20m, and the slit widths are small compared to the slit separation but NOT negligible.
    The microwave wavelength is 2.4X10^-2m. The resulting interference pattern is centered on a screen 0.60m wide, located 2.5m from the slits.

    a)calculate the frequency of the microwave radiation.

    2. Relevant equations
    frequency = velocity / wavelength
    dsinθ = mλ
