- null - Wave Theory of Light
Determine the change in wavelenght of light during its passage from air to glass, if the refracrtive index of glass with respect to air is 1.5 and the frequency of light is 5 x 1014 Hz. Find the wave number of light in glass (velocity of light in air c = 3 X 108 m/s)
A point is situated at 6.5 em and 6.65 em from two coherent sources. Find the nature of illumination at the point, if wavelength of light is 5000 Å
The minimum angular separation between two stars is 4 × 10−6 rad, if telescope is used to observe them with an objective of aperture 16 cm. Find the wavelength of light used.
Light of wavelength 3000Å falls on a metal surface having work function 2.3 eV. Calculate the maximum velocity of ejected electrons
(Planck's constant h = 6.63 x 10-34 J.s., Velocity of light c = 3 x 108 m/s, mass of an electron = 9.1 x 10-31 kg)
