fringes of equal inclination/thickness?

Can anyone explain to me their differences and relation?

It can be talking something about soap bubble producing non-uniform interence pattern. It is because the thickness of upper region of soap bubble is very thin with path differnece amlost zero due to pull by gravity.
The non-uniform thickness results in non-uniform fringes.

In essence, the relationship can be described by the following equation.
$\displaystyle 2nt = m\lambda$ or $\displaystyle 2nt=(k-0.5)\lambda$

where $\displaystyle t$ is the thickness of film of material between
$\displaystyle \lambda$ being the wavelength

n ,m and k being constants
