Coherent light with wavelength 200 nm passes through two identical slits. The width of each slit is a, and the distance between the centers of the slits is d = 1.00 mm. The m = 5 maximum in the twoslit interference pattern is absent, but the maxima for m = 0 through m = 4 are present. What is the ratio of the intensities for the m = 1 and m = 2 maxima in the two-slit pattern?
