## What is the interference of two waves?

Wave interference is the phenomenon that occurs when two waves meet while traveling along the same medium. The interference of waves causes the medium to take on a shape that results from the net effect of the two individual waves upon the particles of the medium.

## Can waves be infinite?

An arbitrary wave shape can be decomposed into an infinite set of sinusoidal waves by the use of Fourier analysis.

**What are the two conditions for interference?**

To set up a stable and clear interference pattern, two conditions must be met: The sources of the waves must be coherent, which means they emit identical waves with a constant phase difference. The waves should be monochromatic – they should be of a single wavelength.

**What are two dimensional waves?**

Tutorial 9: Two-Dimensional Waves Waves can exist in two or three dimensions, however. One example is a plane wave where the wave front or crest of the wave makes a line (in two dimensions) or a plane (in three dimensions). Circular waves (in two dimensions) and spherical waves (in three dimensions) also exist.

### What is interference and types of interference?

Interference is when two waves collide with each other. There are two types of interference: constructive and destructive interference.

### Are there infinite frequencies?

In general the frequency spectrum for Electromagnetic (e.g light, radio, etc) is continuous and thus between any two frequencies there are an uncountable infinity of possible frequencies (just as there are an uncountable number of numbers between 1 and 2).

**Can you have infinite frequency?**

I agree, there is no infinite frequency. This can also be seen as follows: f x t = 1 must be true for all times. This is just the definition of frequency f := 1/t. Infinite frequency and zero time are hence not allowed.

**What are the different types of interference?**

## What happened when there is a two source interference of light?

Double slits produce two coherent sources of waves that interfere. (a) Light spreads out (diffracts) from each slit, because the slits are narrow. These waves overlap and interfere constructively (bright lines) and destructively (dark regions).

## Are electromagnetic waves two dimensional?

Most electromagnetic waves are broader and the fields are simultaneously present throughout a three dimensional volume. All the vectors in a broad beam are extremely hard to show in a two dimensional picture or screen, so we stay with our thin beam animation.
