Interference is in complete agreement to law of conservation of energy

Tilak gurjar posted; "Interference is in complete agreement to law of conservation of energy. Comment" Answer: If there were no interference, the resultant intensity at a point illuminated by two sources will be I = I1+I2 Due to interference This shows that energy is conserved even after interference. There is only a redistribution of energy. There … Continue reading Interference is in complete agreement to law of conservation of energy

Question from Wave Optics

Rajat Asked: What is the difference between interference and diffraction? Ans: Interference is caused by the superposition of wave fronts from two coherent sources; But diffraction is caused by the superposition of wavelets from a single wavefront when it confronts an obstacle or a slit. Note: Visitors are requested to add to the answer through … Continue reading Question from Wave Optics
