What is the name of the experiment that can demonstrate two source interference for light?
Young's double slit experiment
1 of 5
What is the formula for fringe spacing?
Fring spacing (x)=distance from slits to screen(D) x wavelength / spacing between slits (d)
2 of 5
How else can you get a more accurate value of the fringe spacing?
Measure across several fringes then divide by the number of fringe widths between them.
3 of 5
What could the corpscular theory explain and what couldn't it?
Could explain refraction and reflection but not diffraction and interference.
4 of 5
What dis youngs double slit ecperiment prove?
Light could diffract and interfere.
