Answer :


Given:


S1 & S2 are in the same phase. At O, there will be maximum intensity.
There will be maximum intensity at P.

and are right-angled triangles.
So,





( Is small and can be neglected)





.
So,









When n=1,


(1st order).


When n=2,


x=0 (2nd order).


So, when, the intensity at P is equal to the intensity at O.
