# In a Young's double slit experiment 'd' distance between slit is $1 \times 10^{-4}\;m$ and $D=1\; m$. ( distance of screen from slits ) At a point P on the screen the resulting intensity is equal to the intensity due to individual slit $I_0$ The distance of P from central maxima when wavelength of $x=6000\;A^{\circ}$ is

$(a)\;1\;mm \\ (b)\;2\;mm \\ (c)\;2.1\;cm \\ (d)\;1.2\;cm$

When a phase difference of exists between the two interfering waves.
$I= 4 I_0 \cos^2 \large\frac{\phi}{2}$
$I_0 =4 I_0 \cos^2 \large\frac{\phi}{2}$
$\cos \large\frac{\phi}{2} =\large\frac{1}{2}$
$\large\frac{\phi}{2}=\large\frac{\pi}{3}$
$\phi =\large\frac{2 \pi}{3}$
$\therefore$ The path difference $\Delta x$ is given by
