Physics 102: Lecture 20, Slide 3 Diffraction/ Huygens Every point on a wave front acts as a source of tiny wavelets that move forward. We will see maxima and minima on the wall. Light waves originating at different points within opening travel different distances to wall, and can interfere!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
