Solution

The two differences between the interference patterns obtained in Young’s double slit experiment and the diffraction pattern due to a single slit are as follows:

(i) The fringes in the interference pattern obtained from diffraction are of varying width, while in case of interference, all are of the same width.

(ii) The bright fringes in the interference pattern obtained from diffraction have a central maximum followed by fringes of decreasing intensity, whereas in case of interference, all the bright fringes are of equal width.

Concept: Diffraction - The Single Slit
