© Oxford University Press 2011 IP1.26.5 Diffraction of waves Whenever waves pass through a gap or move around an obstacle they spread out. This is called diffraction and it happens with either transverse or longitudinal waves.
© Oxford University Press 2011 IP1.26.5 Diffraction of waves Diffraction occurs all around us. Sound waves diffract when they go through an open doorway. This is why you can hear someone if they are talking outside the door.
© Oxford University Press 2011 IP1.26.5 Diffraction of waves The size of the gap and wavelength of the wave affect how much diffraction takes place. The best diffraction takes place when the gap is the same size as the wavelength.
© Oxford University Press 2011 IP1.26.5 Diffraction of waves Look at this picture again. Would the diffraction be greater or less if the sound was changed to a lower pitch?
© Oxford University Press 2011 IP1.26.5 Diffraction of waves Light has a very short wavelength so normally it is very difficult to observe diffraction. A CD acts as a diffract grating which causes light to diffract into a rainbow pattern.
© Oxford University Press 2011 IP1.26.5 Diffraction of waves Ultrasound also has a very short wavelength. Why does this make it good for medical imaging?

Waves Chapter 14.
Diffraction – The bending of a wave around a barrier, such as an obstacle or the edges of an opening.
Polarization, Diffraction and Interference Behavior of Waves Essential Knowledge 6.A.1: Waves can propagate via different oscillation modes such as transverse.
1 Waves Chapter Wave at the Shoe 3 Types of Waves A wave is a disturbance that carries energy through matter or space. The medium is the matter.
WAVES Chapter 7.
Sound. Sound Waves Sound is a disturbance that travels through a medium as a longitudinal wave.
Mechanical Waves and Sound
How do waves interact?. Reflection Reflection: Happens when a wave bounces back after hitting a barrier. Reflection: Happens when a wave bounces back.
Waves Part 1 Basics What is a wave? A wave is a disturbance that carries energy through matter or space.
Sound Waves Physics Chapter 13 Section 1. I. Production of sound waves Produced by an object vibrating Produced by an object vibrating -ex. Tuning fork.
By Rhett Price. Speed of sound depends on density Correlation between speed and density Not as fast as light speed Also affected by pressure and temperature.
Lesson 1a: What is Sound? -Identify the characteristics of sound waves. -Explain how sound travels.
