Explain why we see the colorful effects of thin-film interference on the surface of soap bubbles and oil slicks, but not on the surface of a window pane or clear plastic bag.

1. The thickness of a window pane or plastic bag is more than the wavelength of light, and interference occurs for thicknesses smaller than the wavelength of light.
2. The thickness of a window pane or plastic bag is less than the wavelength of light, and interference occurs for thicknesses similar to the wavelength of light.
3. The thickness of a window pane or plastic bag is more than the wavelength of light, and interference occurs for thicknesses similar to the wavelength of light.
4. The thickness of a window pane or plastic bag is less than the wavelength of light, and interference occurs for thicknesses larger than the wavelength of light.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends an illuminance of $500\,\text{lx}$ for desktop lighting. An office space has lighting hung $2.50\,\text{m}$ above desktop level that provides only $300\,\text{lx}$. To what height would the lighting fixtures have to be lowered to provide $500\,\text{lx}$ on desktops?
1. $1.22\,\text{m}$
2. $1.09\,\text{m}$
3. $0.96\,\text{m}$
4. $1.94\,\text{m}$
