Phenomena of Wave 2 - Difraction and Interference

The SPM Physics Workbook is developed under the One-School.net Free Books Project. The content of this book is strictly follow Malaysia SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) syllabus. The aim of this project is to provide a complete electronic supplementary network for students to develop self-learning skills by breaking the spoon-feed rituals and to encourage them to compile educational information from the Internet.
1. What is diffraction?

Choice 1 Diffraction is a change in the direction of the waves.
Choice 2 Diffraction is an increase in the speed of the waves.
Choice 3 Diffraction is the spreading of the waves when it passes through an aperture or round a small obstacle.
