## What is the maximum diffraction?

Explanation:Maximum diffraction occurs when size of obstacle is almost equal to wavelength of light wave. Hence maximum diffraction occurs for larger wavelength . As wavelength of radio wave is higher than others maximum diffraction will occur for it.

## What is a wavelength BBC?

The wavelength of a wave is the distance between a point on one wave and the same point on the next wave. It is often easiest to measure this from the trough of one wave to the crest of the next wave.

**What is diffraction BBC Bitesize?**

Diffraction is the spreading out of waves when they pass through a gap. Physics (Single Science)

### What is N in d sin theta n lambda?

λ = d sin θ {\displaystyle \lambda =d\sin {\theta }\,} However, bright fringes do not only occur when the side labelled λ is equal to 1 wavelength: it can equal multiple wavelengths, so long as it is a whole wavelength. Therefore. n λ = d sin θ {\displaystyle n\lambda =d\sin {\theta }\,} , where n is any integer.

### What is central maximum?

The central maximum is the brightest central portion of the diffraction pattern. The central maximum is the widest and has the maximum intensity.

**How do you find the frequency of a wave BBC?**

Frequency is calculated as the reciprocal of (‘one divided by’) the time for one cycle, the period, . Frequency is measured in Hertz, Hz.

## Why does maximum diffraction occur?

When a wave passes through a gap the diffraction effect is greatest when the width of the gap is about the same size as the wavelength of the wave.

## How does diffraction affect wavelength?

Refraction is always accompanied by a wavelength and speed change. Diffraction is the bending of waves around obstacles and openings. The amount of diffraction increases with increasing wavelength.

**What is M in interference?**

An interference pattern is obtained by the superposition of light from two slits. There is constructive interference when d sin θ = mλ (for m = 0, 1, −1, 2, −2, . . . ), where d is the distance between the slits, θ is the angle relative to the incident direction, and m is the order of the interference.

### What is Y in interference?

the distance between the slits or sources of the two light waves (d) the perpendicular distance from the point P to a point on the central antinodal line (y) the distance from point P to the sources (L)
