Question

In an interference pattern the position of zeroth order maxima is 4.8 mm from a certain point P on the screen. The fringe width is 0.2 mm. The position of second maxima from point P is

Solution

Correct option is

5.2 mm

 

 

          Origin (Zero order maxima) is at 4.8 mm from given point P

          

                                                          

          From Point P = (4.8 + 0.4) mm = 5.2 mm
