This figure is a graphical representation of Young’s double slit experiment in which laser light passing through a pair of closely spaced slits results in a 2-source interference pattern. The laser light, incident from the top, is diffracted as it passes through each slit (indicated by A) resulting in an interference pattern which is projected onto a viewing screen (B) which reflects the incident light. On the figure below, carefully mark the locations of

total constructive interference on the viewing screen and describe how it

would look to your eye. Label the order number,

m = 0,±1,±2,K, for each total constructive interference location on the screen.

Ok, so constructive interference occurse when the two waves are in phase at a point. I also know that when the light from the two slits arrives at a point on the screen and constructive interference occurs at that point, a bright fringe appears. How do I know where to mark the points of constructive interference? and how do i know which order number it is?

thanks so much!!
