1.4Analysing diffractionof wavesCarry out activities to observe diffraction of a)
water waves in a ripple tank,b)
light wavesc)
sound waves.Discuss the characteristics of the diffractedwaves in terms if wavelength, frequency,speeds, direction of propagation and theshape of waves.View computers simulations on diffractionof wavesA student is able to
describe diffraction of waves interms of wavelength, frequency,speed, direction of propagation andshape of waves,
draw a diagram to show diffractionof waves.Discuss the effect of size of gap on thedegree of diffraction
