Question

Visible light passing through a circular hole forms a diffraction disc of radius 0.1 mm on a screen. If an X-ray is passed through the same setup, the radius of the diffraction disc will be

  • zero

  • < 0.1 mm

  • 0.1 mm

  • > 0.1 m

Solution

< 0.1 mm

Radius of the diffraction disc is directly proportional to the wavelength of the light used for the given hole. We know that the wavelength of an X-ray is less than the wavelength of visible light. If an X-ray is passed through the same setup, the radius of the diffraction disc will be less than 0.1 m.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
