Waves & Interference (Ch 18.118.4, 18.7)
Interference of Light (Ch 37.137.4, 38.4)
Diffraction (Ch 38.138.3) You are in Japan in the year 1872, and are walking down the center of
a long straight road of width w. Suddenly, two ninjas drop down from
trees on either side of the road a distance L away from you. It is well
known that these ninjas are experts in wave interference and have been
using this to explode peoples head by simply yelling (It is a well know
fact that ninja training allows them to yell coherently and in phase.
This training limits them to using only a single frequency f.) You see
them both yell, and know you must move to a nearby node.
What is the shortest distance perpendicular to the road that you must
travel? Assume the speed of sound is v. A sinusoidal transverse wave is traveling on a string. Any point on the
string:
A) Moves in the same direction as the wave
B) Moves in simple harmonic motion with a different frequency than that of
the wave
C) Moves in simple harmonic motion with the same angular frequency as the
wave
D) Moves in uniform circular motion with a different angular speed than the
wave
E) Moves in uniform circular motion with the same angular speed as the wave A standing wave pattern is established in a string as shown. The
wavelength of one of the component traveling waves is: A) 0.25 m
B) 0.5 m
C) 1 m
D) 2 m
E) 4 m If we increase the wavelength of the light used to form a doubleslit
diffraction pattern:
A) The width of the central diffraction peak increases and the number of
bright fringes within the peak increases
B) The width of the central diffraction peak increases and the number of
bright fringes within the peak decreases
C) The width of the central diffraction peak decreases and the number of
bright fringes within the peak increases
D) The width of the central diffraction peak decreases and the number of
bright fringes within the peak decreases
E) The width of the central diffraction peak increases and the number of
bright fringes within the peak stays the same A parallel beam of monochromatic light is incident on a slit of width
2 cm. The light passing through the slit falls on a screen 2 m away.
As the slit width is decreased:
A) The width of the pattern on the screen continuously decreases
B) The width of the pattern on the screen at first decreases but then increases
C) The width of the pattern on the screen increases and then decreases
D) The width of the pattern on the screen remains the same
E) The width of the pattern on the screen changes color going from red to blue That’s it. The end.
