Question

In a Young’s double slit experiment, the fringes are displaced by a distance x when a glass plate of refractive index 1.5 is introduced in the path of one of the beams. When this plate is replaced by another plate of same thickness, the shift of fringes is (32)x. The refractive index of second plate is


  1. 1.00

  2. 1.50

  3. 1.25

  4. 1.75


Solution

The correct option is D

1.75


Shift =(μ1)tDd

x=(1.51)tDd      (1) 

and 32x=(μ1)tDd      (2)

Dividing equation (1) by (2)

23=0.5μ1

2μ2=1.5 

2π=3.5 

μ=1.75
