**Problem : **
What is the amplitude of the magnetic field of a light ray that has an irradiance of 0.00003 W/cm
^{2}
.

**Problem : **
What is the position of the fourth maximum for a double-slit apparatus with slits 0.05 centimeters apart and
a screen 1.5 meters distant when performed with monochromatic red light of frequency
384×10^{12}
Hz?

**Problem : **
In a Young's Double Slit experiment, what is the ratio of the irradiance at a distance 1 centimeter from
the center of the pattern, irradiance of each individual beam entering through the slits (assume the same
set up as before: light of frequency
384×10^{12}
Hz, 0.05 centimeters between the slits, and a
screen 1.5 meters away)?

**Problem : **
A stream of electrons, each having an energy 0.5 eV is incident on two extremely thin slits 10
^{-2}
millimeters apart. What is the distance between adjacent minima on a screen 25 meters behind the slits (
*m*
_{e} = 9.11×10^{-31}
kilograms, and
1eV = 1.6×10^{-19}
Joules). * Hint: use de Broglie's formula,
p = h/λ
to find the wavelength of the electrons. *

**Problem : **
A Michelson interferometer can be used to calculate the wavelength of light by moving on of the mirrors and observing the number of fringes that move past a particular point. If a displacement of the mirror by
*λ*/2
causes each fringe to move to the position of an adjacent fringe, calculate the wavelength of light being used if 92 fringe pairs pass a point when the mirror is shifted
2.53×10^{-5}
meters.
