Principle of linear superposition: When two or more waves
are present in a certain place, the disturbance at each point
is the sum of the disturbances of each wave.
Interference: if two waves arrive at a point in phase they
will interfere constructively; the intensity at that point will
be enhanced. Destructive interference results if the phase
difference is 180 degrees.
When a wave goes through a slit, it bends around the edges;
a central maximum is obtained, followed by a succession of dark
and bright bands.
Lecture Slides are screen-captured images of important points in the lecture. Students can download and print out these lecture slide images to do practice problems as well as take notes while watching the lecture.
The book offers a complete review of your AP course, strategies to give you the edge on test day, and plenty of practice with AP-style test questions. It includes full length practice exams modeled on the real test and all the terms and concepts you need to know.
This book includes a review of all the topics tested including vectors, kinematics, fluid mechanics, optics and nuclear physics. Additionally, the book includes two full length tests made complete with descriptive solutions, and quick study tables for Physics B formulas and equations.
