Chapter 36: DIFFRACTION 1. Sound differs from light in that sound: A. is not subject to diffraction B. is a torsional wave rather than a longitudinal wave C. does not require energy for its origin D. is a longitudinal wave rather than a transverse wave E. is always monochromatic ans: D 2. Radio waves are readily diffracted around buildings whereas light waves are negligibly diffracted around buildings. This is...
