Wave Interference Activity

Constructive Interference Рwhen two crests/troughs from two sources meet, the energies combine to form a larger wave.


Destructive Interference Рwhen a crest and a trough from two sources meet, the energies are against each other, leading to the waves cancel out each other.


Standing Wave Рwhen two interfering waves have the same wavelength and amplitude, the result is that the interference wave pattern remains the same or stationary. The point where the wave is at rest is called a node.
