Step 1

As per our guidelines we provide solution of only first 3 subpart, if you need the solution of remaining part kindly post the same question and mention the subpart whose solution you want.

Step 2

Given:

Slit separation (d) = 2.4×10-4 m

Distance between slit plate and screen (B) = 1.8 m

Distance between central maximum and first bright fringes (δ) = 4.2 mm

Step 3

Part a)

The diagram of the given cond...
