      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 9. 
    The equations for double slit interference are exactly the opposite as those for diffration gratings

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 10. 
    Double Slit Diffraction doesn't work when the slits are too far apart because all the equations rely on the fact that the distance between the slits is very small compared to the distance between the slits and the screen.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False
