(d-Answer) the change in amplitude observed when two waves are present in the same medium and they cross. Solution None of the other properties change, and once the waves have passed through each other, it is as if they had never encountered each other. This is what makes waves so diFerent from other physical things that carry energy and momentum. Total Points for Problem: 1 Points 2...
