Solution

Given:
Θ = 40 seconds = `40 / 3600` degrees
`= 40 / 3600 xx  ᴨ / 180 "radians," β = 0.12 cm`
Formula:
Spacing between the consecutive bright fringes is, β = `λ / (2θ)` (for air film)
The wavelength is, λ = 2β ×  θ
`Λ = 2 xx 0.12 xx 40 xx ᴨ / 3600 xx  180`
`= 46.54 xx  10^-8 cm`
`λ = 4654 A^0 `
