Question description

Answer questions on a piece of paper or pdf file;

1. Explain why Thomas Young's Experiment was able to show bright and dark bands on a screen when many people had tried and failed before. Explain also why his experiment provided strong support for the Wave Model of Light.
2. Using the following simulation of two dimensional wave interference and the two equations involving path difference,
3. Choose a point on any nodal line and show the complete calculation for wavelength. How does it compare to the value for wavelength given in the simulation?
4. Choose a point on any antinodal line and show the complete calculation for wavelength. How does it compare to the value for wavelength given in the simulation?
5. Now use the simulation of Thomas Young's double-slit experiment to obtain measurements and show the complete calculations of wavelength using the other three equations learned in this activity. (Note that you will have to calculate the angle using the sine function.) Choose any set-up you desire in terms of distance to the screen, distance between slits, and wavelength. How do your calculated wavelengths compare to the wavelength given in the simulation?

NOTE: ANY SIMULATION FOUND ONLINE CAN BE USED FOR QUESTION 5, AND QUESTION 4 CAN BE SOLVED WITHOUT A SIMULATION
