CONTENT : INTERFERENCE OF WAVESCHAPTER HIGHLIGHTS (30 MINUTES)1. Inteference of waves is superposition effects produce by two waves from twocoherent point sources.( same frequency, same phase).2. These two different sources producing nodal lines (consisting of all the pointswith
) and anti nodal lines(consisting of all the pointswith
).(i) Constructive interference (ii) Destructive interferenceThe fenomena that two identical The cancellation of a wavewaves which are in phase ,come by another when two identicaltogether at a point to form a bigger waves which are out of phasewave. come together .ZeroMaximum crest Displacement3.Determination Of Wavelength Using Interference Pattern.
The principle of superposition
When two or more waves meet at the same point, thedisplacement of resulting wave is equal to the sum of the displacement of the individual waves.
