**WAVE OPTICS Quiz-11**

**Dear Readers,**

As per analysis for previous years, it has been observed that students preparing for NEET find Physics out of all the sections to be complex to handle and the majority of them are not able to comprehend the reason behind it. This problem arises especially because these aspirants appearing for the examination are more inclined to have a keen interest in Biology due to their medical background.
Furthermore, sections such as Physics are dominantly based on theories, laws, numerical in comparison to a section of Biology which is more of fact-based, life sciences, and includes substantial explanations. By using the table given below, you easily and directly access to the topics and respective links of MCQs. Moreover, to make learning smooth and efficient, all the questions come with their supportive solutions to make utilization of time even more productive. Students will be covered for all their studies as the topics are available from basics to even the most advanced.

**Q1.**In a Young’ s double slit experiment, the intensity at a point where the path difference is 𝜆/6 where(λ is wavelength of the light) is 𝐼. I f 𝐼0denotes the maximum intensity, then 𝐼/𝐼

_{o}is equal to

Solution

ϕ = 𝜆/6 = 360°/6 = 60° 𝐼 = 𝐼0 cos2 𝜃 = 𝐼0 cos2 60° =3/4× 𝐼0 𝐼/𝐼0 = 3/4

ϕ = 𝜆/6 = 360°/6 = 60° 𝐼 = 𝐼0 cos2 𝜃 = 𝐼0 cos2 60° =3/4× 𝐼0 𝐼/𝐼0 = 3/4

**Q2.**A beam with wavelength 𝜆 falls on a stack of partially reflecting planes with separation 𝑑. The angle 𝜃 that the beam should make with the planes so that the beams reflected from successive planes may interfere constructively is (where 𝑛 = 1,2,……)

Solution

Path difference = 2𝑑 sin𝜃 ∴ For constructive interference 2𝑑 sin𝜃 = 𝑛𝜆 ⇒ 𝜃 = sin

Path difference = 2𝑑 sin𝜃 ∴ For constructive interference 2𝑑 sin𝜃 = 𝑛𝜆 ⇒ 𝜃 = sin

^{-1}( 𝑛𝜆/2𝑑 )**Q3.**S

_{1}And S

_{2}are two coherent sources. The intensity of both sources are same. If the intensity at the point of maxima is 4 Wm

^{-2}, the intensity of each source is

Solution

At a point of maxima ∴ 𝐼max = 4𝐼0 = 4 Wm

At a point of maxima ∴ 𝐼max = 4𝐼0 = 4 Wm

^{-2}∴ 𝐼0 = 1 Wm^{-2}

**Q4.**A single slit Fraunhofer diffraction pattern is formed with white light. For what wavelength of light the third secondary maximum in the diffraction pattern coincides with the second secondary maximum in the pattern for red light of wavelength 6500Å?

Solution

𝑥 = (2𝑛 + 1)𝜆𝐷/2𝑎 For red light 𝑥 = (4+1)𝐷/2𝑎× 6500 For unknown wavelength of light, 𝑥 = (6 + 1)𝐷/2𝑎 × 𝜆 Accordingly ∴ 5 ×6500 = 7 × 𝜆 ⇒ 𝜆 = 5/7 × 6500 = 4642.8 Å

𝑥 = (2𝑛 + 1)𝜆𝐷/2𝑎 For red light 𝑥 = (4+1)𝐷/2𝑎× 6500 For unknown wavelength of light, 𝑥 = (6 + 1)𝐷/2𝑎 × 𝜆 Accordingly ∴ 5 ×6500 = 7 × 𝜆 ⇒ 𝜆 = 5/7 × 6500 = 4642.8 Å

**Q5.**In diffraction from a single slit, the angular width of the central maxima does not depend on

Solution

**For a slit of width 𝑎, light of wavelength 𝜆, when light falls on the slit, the diffraction patterns so obtained as**

**The first diffraction minimum occurs at the angles given by sinθ = 𝜆/𝑎**

**From the equation, it is clear that width of the central diffraction maximum is inversely proportional to the width of the slit. On increasing the width size𝑎, the angle θ at which the intensity first becomes zero decreases, resulting in a narrower central band and if the slit width is made smaller, the angle θ increases, giving a wider central band**.

**Q6.**The Young’s double slit experiment is performed with blue and with green light of wavelength 4360 Å and 5460 Å respectively. If 𝑥 is the distance of 4th maxima from the central one, then

Solution

Distance of 𝑛𝑡ℎmaxima, 𝑥 = 𝑛𝜆 𝐷/𝑑 ∝ 𝜆 As 𝜆𝑏 < 𝜆𝑔 ∴ 𝑥

Distance of 𝑛𝑡ℎmaxima, 𝑥 = 𝑛𝜆 𝐷/𝑑 ∝ 𝜆 As 𝜆𝑏 < 𝜆𝑔 ∴ 𝑥

We know, 𝜆
