So basically all the resources on the net use this formula as if it's "too well known" to be explained.
Where m is the number of fringes observed, and L is the length of the gas-cell in the Michelson Interferometer.
I just want to know where I can find a derivation for this formula. I know in PGRE one won't derive anything
but I want to learn, not just to pass PGRE.
