# A shift of one fringe in the Michelson-Morley experiment correspond?

A shift of one fringe in the Michelson-Morley experiment corresponds to a change in the round-trip travel time along one arm of the interferometer by one period of vibration of light (about 2×10−15 s) when the apparatus is rotated by 90◦. Based on the results of Example 2.3, what velocity through the ether would be deduced from a shift of one fringe? (Take the length of the interferometer arm to be 11 m.)

heres a solution I don't understand

As for the slader solution, what's not to understand? It's just math. I presume your Example 2.3 gives you a value of L (but maybe it's delta t). Plug and chug.

They have the answer ********. so of course they can plug and chug. seems you don't know how to do the problem and just wanted points. oh **** which is why you answered anonymous
