In this lesson on Variables Affecting Diffraction and Its Consequence on Imaging, which is part of Unit 4 Area of Study 2 for VCE Physics, you will learn how to:
- investigate and describe theoretically and practically the effects of varying the width of a gap or diameter of an obstacle on the diffraction pattern produced by light and apply this to limitations of imaging using light.
The Diffraction Limit and the Pursuit of Higher Resolution
Factors Affecting Diffraction of Waves
In this video you will learn about factors that impact the diffraction of waves.
