Using monochromatic light of wavelength \lambda , an experimentalist sets up the Young’s double slit experiment in three ways as   shown.

If she observes that  y= \beta ', the wavelength of light used is :      

                                                                

 

  • Option 1)

As we learnt in

Displacement of fringe -

\Delta y= \frac{D}{d}\left ( \mu -1 \right )t

Shift in position of fringes

 

- wherein

If sheet is placed in front of one of slit.

 

 t=1.8\times 10^{-6}m

\mu=1.6

n = 2

Now (\mu-1)t=n\lambda\ \;\Rightarrow\ (1.6-1)\times 1.8\times 10^{-6}=2\lambda

\lambda=\frac{1.8\times10^{-6}\times0.6}{2}=540\ nm

Correct option is 2.
