How the nature of interference fringes obtained on a screen at a point depend on the path difference?

Dear student,

Let O be the centre of the distance between the slits. The intensity of light at a point on the screen will depend on the path difference between the two waves reaching that point.  Consider an arbitrary point P at a distance x from O on the screen. 

Path difference between two waves at P = S2P − S1P
