Topic 9: Wave Phenomena

9.1 Simple harmonic motion

Displacement, velocity, acceleration

Kinetic and potential energy

9.2 Single slit diffraction

That formula and its implications. Maybe I should write about Huygons

9.3 Interference

Double slit. Describe qualitatively how slit width affects it.

Diffraction grating

Thin film interference

9.4 Resolution

Rayleigh criterion

Resolving two sources

Diffraction gratings and resolution

9.5 Doppler effect

The equation and knowing how to use it
