How to Calculate Path difference in Young's double-slit experiment?
Path difference in Young's double-slit experiment calculator uses Path Difference=sqrt((Distance from center to the light source+(Distance between two coherent sources/2))^2+(Distance between slits and screen)^2)-sqrt((Distance from center to the light source-(Distance between two coherent sources)^2)+(Distance between slits and screen)^2) to calculate the Path Difference, Path difference in Young's double-slit experiment is because the wave reaching light source from the second coherent source must travel a longer path than the wave reaching light source from the first coherent source. Path Difference and is denoted by k symbol.
How to calculate Path difference in Young's double-slit experiment using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Path difference in Young's double-slit experiment, enter Distance between two coherent sources (d), Distance from center to the light source (y) and Distance between slits and screen (D) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Path difference in Young's double-slit experiment calculation can be explained with given input values -> -0.011711 = sqrt((0.02+(0.1/2))^2+(0.2)^2)-sqrt((0.02-(0.1)^2)+(0.2)^2).
