A glass plate of refractive index 1.6 is in contact with an- other glass plate of refractive index 1.8 along a line such that a wedge of 0.5° is formed. Light of wavelength 5000 A 1s incident vertically on the wedge and the film is viewed from the top. Calculate the fringe spacing. The whole appa- ratus is immersed in an oil of refractive index 1.7. What will be the qualitative difference in the fringe pattern and what wll be the new fringe width?

    in wedge shaped file interference, we need the refractive index of medium which is between the glass plates that are at some angle with each other.

    Is fringe width is 28.6*10^(-6)m when apparatus is in air and new fringe width is 16.8*10^(-6)m when apparatus is immersed in oil? if this is right, I'll attach my solution..
