Textbook Problem

Calculate the minimum thickness of an oil slick on water that appears blue when illuminated by white light perpendicular to its surface. Take the blue wavelength to be 470 nm and the index of refraction of oil to be 1.40.

To determine

Thickness of the oil slick

Explanation

Given info:

Wavelength of the reflected light, λ=470nm

Refractive index of oil, n=1.40

Formula used:

Thickness of the film producing constructing interference is calculated by the formula

  t=λ4n

Here,

  λ is the wavelength of the reflected light

  n is the refractive index

  t is the thickness of the film producing interference

Calculation:
