# Diffraction of wave

1 2 When a wave travels through a narrow gap or meets an obstacle, it is __________. The effect is most obvious when the _________ of the gap or obstacle is similar to or smaller than the ____________________ of the wave. Diffraction is the bending of a wave as it moves through a small opening or around an obstacle. 4.1 1 2 Characteristic of the Diffracted wave

The wavelength of the incident waves _____________________ diffracted waves during diffraction. The frequency of the incident waves _____________________ diffracted waves during diffraction. The speed of the incident waves _____________________ diffracted waves during diffraction.
