[J2 Physics PMCians] Rayleigh’s criterion and all about Stationary Waves
What we did in 2 hours:
We extended the importance of single slit diffraction to why there is a limit in our eye’s ability to resolve 2 objects at a distance. That’s where Rayleigh’s criterion helps us to find the limit of our ability.
We ended the lesson by asking, what happens when 2 waves move in opposite direction to each other? You get a Stationary Wave!! And we summarised the 2 types of equations needed to analyse any stationary wave.
