The box of a pin hole camera, of length $$L,$$ has a hole of radius a. It is assumed that when the hole is illuminated by a parallel beam of light of wavelength $$\lambda $$ the spread of the spot (obtained on the opposite wall of the camera) is the sum of its geometrical spread and the spread due to diffraction. The spot would then have its minimum size (say $${b_{\min }}$$) when :

Two beams, $$A$$ and $$B$$, of plane polarized light with mutually perpendicular planes of polarization are seen through a polaroid. From the position when the beam $$A$$ has maximum intensity (and beam $$B$$ has zero intensity), a rotation of polaroid through $${30^ \circ }$$ makes the two beams appear equally bright. If the initial intensities of the two beams are $${{\rm I}_A}$$ and $${{\rm I}_B}$$ respectively, then $${{{{\rm I}_A}} \over {{{\rm I}_B}}}$$ equals:
