NOT a correct explanation for Statement-1.
(c) Statement -1 is False, Statement-2 is True.
(d) Statement -1 is True, Statement-2 is False.
Q.27 Statement-1 : No interference pattern is detected when
two coherent sources are infinitely close to each other.
Statement-2 : The fringe width is directly proportional to
the distance between the two slits.
Q.28 Statement-1 : In Y oung’s experiment, the fringe width for
dark fringes is same as that for white fringes.
Statement-2 : In Y oung’s double slit experiment performed
with a source of white light, only black and bright fringes
are observed.
Q.29 Statement-1 : In Y oung’s double slit experiment, the fringes
become indistinct if one of the slits is covered with
cellophane paper.
Statement-2 : The cellophane paper decreases the
wavelength of light.
