Physics H133: Problem Set #5

Here are some hints, suggestions, and comments on the problem set.

Two-Minute Problems

Remember to give a good explanation, no longer than two sentences.

  1. Q5T.2: This is an application to matter waves of what we learned in chapter Q2 about 2-slit interference and diffraction. What should happen to the interference pattern if we put a detector behind a slit? What does the slit width determine and how does it relate to the wavelength? If we double all three numbers, what should happen to the pattern?
  2. Q5T.3: Note that theta=60 degrees is given!

Chapter Q5 Problems
