Which of the following statements indicates that light waves are transverse?
1. Light waves can travel in a vacuum.
2. Light waves show interference.
3. Light waves can be polarized.
4. Light waves can be diffracted.
Interference was observed in interference chamber when the air was present, now the chamber is evacuated and if the same light is used, a careful observer will see
(1) No interference
(2) Interference with bright bands
(3) Interference with dark bands
(4) Interference in which width of the fringe will be slightly increased
Two coherent sources have intensity in the ratio of . Ratio of (intensity)max/(intensity)min is:
If two waves represented by and interfere at a point, the amplitude of the resulting wave will be about
Two coherent sources of intensities, I1 and I2 produce an interference pattern. The maximum intensity in the interference pattern will be
(1) I1 + I2
(3) (I1 + I2)2
Two beams of light having intensities I and 4I interfere to produce a fringe pattern on a screen. The phase difference between the beams is at point A and π at point B. Then the difference between the resultant intensities at A and B is
If an interference pattern has maximum and minimum intensities in a 36 : 1 ratio, then what will be the ratio of their amplitudes?
1. 5 : 7
2. 7 : 4
3. 4 : 7
4. 7 : 5
In Young's double slit experiment, if the slit widths are in the ratio 1 : 9, then the ratio of the intensity at minima to that at maxima will be
In a certain double slit experimental arrangement interference fringes of width 1.0 mm each are observed when light of wavelength 5000 Å is used. Keeping the set up unaltered, if the source is replaced by another source of wavelength 6000 Å, the fringe width will be
(1) 0.5 mm
(2) 1.0 mm
(3) 1.2 mm
(4) 1.5 mm
Two coherent light sources S1 and S2 (λ= 6000 Å) are 1mm apart from each other. The screen is placed at a distance of 25 cm from the sources. The width of the fringes on the screen should be

(2) 0.025 cm
(3) 0.010 cm
(4) 0.030 cm
