(4) None of these.
Which of the following is not true?
1. The speed of light is dependent on the colour of the light.
2. The speed of violet light is less than the speed of the red light in glass.

4. When the light diverges from a point source, the shape of the wavefront is plane.
A beam of light consisting of two wavelengths, 650 nm, and 520 nm, is used to obtain interference fringes in Young’s double-slit experiment. What is the distance of the third bright fringe on the screen from the central maximum for wavelength 650 nm?
The 6563 Å line emitted by hydrogen in a star is found to be red-shifted by 15 Å. The speed with which the star is receding from the Earth is:
