In a Young’s double slit experiment, the slit separation is 0.2 cm, the distance between the screen and slit is 1m. Wavelength of the light used is 5000 Å. The distance between two consecutive dark fringes (in mm) is 

(1) 0.25

(2) 0.26

(3) 0.27

(4) 0.28

(1) Distance between two consecutive dark fringes β=λDd=5000×1010×10.2×102=0.25 mm.
