A double slit produces a diffraction pattern that is a combination of single and double slit interference. Find the ratio of the width of the slits to the separation between them, if the first minimum of the single slit pattern falls on the fifth maximum of the double slit pattern. (This will greatly reduce the intensity of the fifth maximum.)

in this problem, we are asked to find ratio off the single slit d do there. Um, double slit separation, which is a d. We can find that by writing me, Krystle for each slipped for single slippery here. Uh, P is equal to the d. Sign that sign that Just be cool, too. End times, Linda, for a single slip. We have an easy call to one. Then our D becomes a D is tickle, too. Um, so do you're so d is equal to do you sign that is equal to lend up for the double slit we have m is equal to five. Then we could write a small D scientist up is equal to five times off, 11 a, then dividing these two numbers here we have a D sign later is equal to Linda and then divide it by small design data scientist, which is, um, five Linda. This gives us the cancel in sign sign because of the same England, Lendl and I. Same. So they would cancel out. So d, divided by small D is won over five sleep separation is a five times. Then they slid worth here
