As an admirer of thomas young, you perform a double-slit experiment in his honor. you set your slits 1.21 mm apart and position your screen 3.73 m from the slits. although young had to struggle to achieve a monochromatic light beam of sufficient intensity, you simply turn ona laser with a wavelength of 643 nm. how far on the screen are the first bright fringe and the second dark fringe from the central bright fringe? express your answers in millimeters.

In a thunderstorm, charge builds up on the water droplets or ice crystals in a cloud. thus, the charge can be considered to be distributed uniformly throughout the cloud. for the purposes of this problem, take the cloud to be a sphere of diameter 1.00 kilometer. the point of this problem is to estimate the maximum amount of charge that this cloud can contain, assuming that the charge builds up until the electric field at the surface of the cloud reaches the value at which the surrounding air breaks down. this breakdown means that the air becomes highly ionized, enabling it to conduct the charge from the cloud to the ground or another nearby cloud. the ionized air will then emit light due to the recombination of the electrons and atoms to form excited molecules that radiate light. in addition, the large current will heat up the air, resulting in its rapid expansion. these two phenomena account for the appearance of lightning and the sound of thunder. take the breakdown electric field of air to be eb=3.00ă—106n/c. part a estimate the total charge q on the cloud when the breakdown of the surrounding air is reached. express your answer numerically, to three significant figures, using ďµ0=8.85ă—10â’12c2/(nâ‹…m2) .

Aboat radioed a distress call to a coast guard station. at the time of the call, a vector a from the station to the boat had a magnitude of 45.0 km and was directed 15.0° east of north. a vector from the station to the point where the boat was later found is = 30.0 km, 15.0° north of east. what are the components of the vector from the point where the distress call was made to point where the boat was found? in other words, what are the components of vector c = b - a?
