Since, Between the first and second minima, there is a maxima of undetermined wavelength.

And,

Position of minima in diffraction Pattern is

$n\lambda =d\mathrm{sin}\theta $

Thus, For first minima of Green Light of wavelength ${\lambda}_{g}$ will be,

$n{\lambda}_{g}=d\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{1}$

To Calculate

The first maxima of some other wavelength ${\lambda}_{1}$ will be at position,

$\frac{3}{2}{\lambda}^{1}=d\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{2}$

For the first minimum of diffraction Pattern of Green light

$n{\lambda}_{g}=d\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{1}$

For the first maxima of some other light of wavelength ${\lambda}^{1}$

$\frac{3}{2}{\lambda}^{1}=d\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{2}$

Since, first minimum of green light coincide with the first maximum of the other light therefore,

${\theta}_{1}={\theta}_{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{thus}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{1}=\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{2}$

Therefore we can write it as,

$\frac{3}{2}{\lambda}^{1}=n{\lambda}_{g}$

Given:

n=1 (for first minima)

${\lambda}_{g}=5240\text{}\dot{A}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{3}{2}{\lambda}^{1}=1(5240\dot{A})\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\lambda}^{1}=\frac{2\times 5240\dot{A}}{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{\lambda}^{1}=3493\dot{A}$

The Wavelength of the first maxima of some other light is ${\lambda}^{1}=3493\dot{A}$

And,

Position of minima in diffraction Pattern is

$n\lambda =d\mathrm{sin}\theta $

Thus, For first minima of Green Light of wavelength ${\lambda}_{g}$ will be,

$n{\lambda}_{g}=d\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{1}$

To Calculate

The first maxima of some other wavelength ${\lambda}_{1}$ will be at position,

$\frac{3}{2}{\lambda}^{1}=d\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{2}$

${\theta}_{1}={\theta}_{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{thus}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{1}=\mathrm{sin}{\theta}_{2}$

When an object is placed 8cm from a convex lens, an image is captured on a screen at 4com from the lens. Now the lens is moved along its principal axis while the object and the screen are kept fixed. Where the lens should be moved to obtain another clear?

Suppose you have source of coherent light, a laser beam, with +45 polarization. A polarizing beam splitter (PBS) splits the beam into its horizontal and vertical components. The second polarizing beam splitter recombines them into a single beam again. If the two paths between the two PBS are of equal length and there is nothing else in them that would cause a phase shift, I'd assume the output polarization is equal to the input polarization: +45.

What is the output polarization if you place an attenuator in the path of the horizontal component? How do you calculate it?
