In single slit diffraction experiment ,if slit width is made double of original then intensity increases
1.) two times
3.) 8 times
4.) 16 times
Which is correct and how ? Please explain in detail.

Intensity is proportional to the square of the slit width. Thus, when the width of the slit is made double the original width, intensity will get four times of its original value.

- Two polarizers are placed at crossed position (i.e. having an angle of 90 between them ), a third polarizer making an angle with the first one is placed between them. An unpolarized light of intensity I0 is incident on the first oneand passes through all the three polarizers. Find the light intensity of the emergent beam.
- A parallel beam of light of wavelength 5900 Å falls normally on a plane transmission grating having 4250 lines/cm. Find the angle of diffraction for maximum intensity in first order.

- The diffraction due to a single slit is observed in the laboratory. What will be the effect on the diffraction pattern if (a) Light of smaller wavelength is used. (b) Slit is made thinner.
- Why does sky appears blue?
- Light of wavelength 5500 passes through a single slit of width 0.01 m. Find the angular diffraction to the first dark band of the diffraction pattern.
