Wave Optics 305 16. One way to produce interference patterns is to allow light to pass through very small openings. The opening between threads in a tautly stretched cloth like that in an umbrella is small enough for the effects to be observed. 18. Sound waves are longitudinal waves and cannot be polarized. 20. The first experiment. The separation between maxima is inversely proportional to the slit
