The interference patern is observed on a scren 4 m far away. For this proble, ignore the difraction efects from individual slits. a) Calculate the spacing betwen the bright fringes. Constructive interference: dsin?=m? tan?=y/L, small angle approx: tan?~sin? dy/L~m? -> spacing = L?/d =(4m)x(589x10 -9 m)/(1.8x10 -3 m)=1.31 m b) If the scren extends on the two sides of the central maximum of the interference patern by 4 cm on each side (total scren length 8 cm), how many bright fringes in total wil be visible on the scren? On left side, highest order visible is (1.8mm)(40mm)/4000mm=m(589x10 -6 m) m=30.5. So max order visible is m=30. Same on other side. Add central line to get 61 total bright fringes. c) Calculate the phase diference betwen the 2 interfering waves at a point P on the scren a distance y = 2m from the center of the central fringe.

[Hint: remember that the single slit difraction modulates the overal intensity of the two- slit interference patern.] The first difraction minimum is given by ! asin"=#. The y-position on the scren is given by tan#sin"=y min /L So the first difraction min occurs at ! y min =L"/a4000mm ( ) 589#10 $6 mm ( ) /0.18mm=13.1mm From before, the interference maxima are 1.31 m apart. So the tenth int. max. occurs at the difraction minimum and is not visible. 9 fringes on either side, + 1 in the middle, gives 19 fringes visible. N = Value Units 6 Difraction of electrons [b) and c) 5 pts each] A beam of electrons of momentum p moves horizontaly toward a narrow horizontal square slit of width a. After leaving the slit, the beam spreads verticaly. The half-width ? of this angular spread is ilustrated in the figure, where ? is the angle of the first minimum of difraction. Derive a formula for the angle ?, using two complementary aproaches: b) Find the de Broglie wavelength of the electrons, and treat the problem as difraction of a wave by a single slit. Expres ? in terms of p, a and h. [Hint: Consider ? very smal and find the first minimum in the single slit patern.] The deBroglie wavelength is ?=h/p. The first minimum in the single slit pattern is at ?=?/a in the small-angle approximation, so we have ?=h/pa. x Electron beam p y a 7 c) Use the uncertainty principle to determine the vertical component p y of the momentum after the electrons pas through the slit, and again expres ? in terms of p, a and h. [To get the same answer as in (b) let the quantity on the right side of the uncertainty principle equation be h rather than h/4? and? consider that only the y-component of the momentum varies? when elctrons pass through the slit.] The uncertainty principle is ?y ?p y =h, where ?y is the slit width, a. Then ?p y =h/a. This is the y- component of the momentum after the electron leaves the slit. The x- component is stil p. The deflection angle is thus ?=tan - 1 (p y /p x )=tan - 1 (h/p a). In the smal angle aproximation, tan?~? we get ?~ h/p a as before. 5) Photoelectric Efect [20 pts, 5 pts each] The work function for cesium is 1.9 eV. a) Calculate the cut-of wavelength for the photoelectric efect. The cut-of wavelength is the maximum wavelength for which electrons are ejected from the metal. This is when the photon energy is equal to the work function. ! hc " = 1240 eV#nm " =1.9eV$"=652.6nm b) Calculate the maximum kinetic energy of ejcted electrons when the wavelength of the incident light is 30 nm. If the incident light has ?=30nm, it has energy ! hf= hc " . The maximum kinetic energy of an electron is this energy minus the work function ! = 1240 eV"nm 300 #1.9eV=2.23 eV ? c = Value Units K max = Value Units 8 c) What is the wavelength of the ejected electrons that have the maximum kinetic energy? The wavelength is the deBroglie wavelength, ! "=h/p. The momentum is related to the kinetic energy as ! KE=p 2 /m"p=2mKE Then ! "= h 2mKE = hc 2mc 2 KE = 1240 eV#nm 20.511$10 6 eV ( ) 2.23eV ( ) =0.82 nm d) If the intensity of the beam of photons on the cesium surface is 1 W/m 2 , assuming that the wavelength of the photons is 60 nm, calculate the number of photons that strike an area of 1 cm 2 each second. 1 W/m 2 =1 (J/s)/m 2 = 6.242x10 18 (eV/s)/m 2 A 60 nm photon has energy ! E= hc " = 1240 eV#nm 600 =2.067eV The flux is then 6.242x10 18 (eV/s)/m 2 / (2.067 eV/photon) =3.02x10 18 (photons/s)/m 2 Since there are 10 4 cm 2 in 1 m 2 , the flux / cm 2 is 3.02x10 14 (photons/s)/cm 2 ?= Value Units ?= Value Units Mark Rzchowski Microsoft Word - Phy208Exam3_V4Sol.doc
