 What is the speed of light in a vacuum?

 When light enters a denser medium, is it bent towards or away from the normal?

 What is dispersion?

 As the wavelength decreases, what happens to the interference pattern produced by two slits?

 As the distance between two slits decreases, what happens to the interference pattern produced by light of a given wavelength passing through those slits?

 Do incandescent solids produce continuous or discreet spectra?

 True or False. Excited gases produce unique spectral signatures.

 When light rays are refracted upon entering or exiting an optically dense medium do they experience a phase inversion?

 In thin film interference, when are reflections out-of-phase with the incident beam?

 What is Young's double slit interference formula

 
What is the equation for single slit diffration

 What is the thin film interference formula

 What is the value of EDP for "dark" fringes in interference

 What is the value of EDP for "bright" fringes in interference
