### 2. A double slit experiment is performed using a sound source that produces sound waves with wavelength 10 cm. The sound waves pass through double slits that are an unknown distance, d, apart. Along a screen, L = 5 m from the slits, a sound detector is moved perpendicular to the line passing through the point halfway between the slits. The first place where sound is not detected is 1 m from this axis. How far apart are the slits?
