IB Physics: Interference

Deriving the equation for the intensity distribution of two slits is too advanced for this course so we just calculate the position of the maxima in the interference pattern and the first diffraction minima then fill in the rest. Interesting how we take a small bit of information and deduce so much.Rotating vectors can again be used to get a mathematical model for the intensity distribution for two slits and show why...
