Chapter 16 4 Superposition 4 and 4 Standing Waves

2
Section 16-1: Superposition of Waves When two or more waves combine, the resultant wave at any point, is the algebraic sum of the individual waves.

3
Superposition and the Wave Equation y 3 = c 1 y 1 + c 2 y 2 superposition

4
Interference of Harmonic Waves

5
Constructive interference

6
Destructive Interference

7
Beats

8
Phase difference due to a path difference Waves are in phase if the phase difference, δ= n(2π) This results in constructive interference

9
The waves are exactly out of phase when δ= (n+½)2π This results in destructive interference

10
Example 16-2 p 485

13
Intensity versus path difference for two sources that are in phase.

14
Two sources that are in phase, or have a constant phase difference are said to be coherent. The Double Slit Experiment: doubleslit

15
Section 16-2: Standing Waves String fixed at both ends The standing wave condition is when L = n(½λ) and f n = nν/2L =nf 1
