Problem 2R

Shown above right are four different pairs of transverse wave pulses that move toward each other. At some point in time, the pulses meet and interact (interfere) with each other. Rank the four cases, from most to least, on the basis of the height of the peak that results when the centers of the pulses coincide.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 2R Step 1 of 1: When two or more waves come together, they undergo Interference. Depending on how the troughs and crests of the waves are matched up; the resultant wave will be formed due to phenomenon called superposition. According to the principle of linear superposition, when two or more waves come together or superimpose on each other, the resultant wave will be the sum of the individual waves. This principle of superposition can be applied for the two waves, when they are travelling through same medium at the same time. When two waves pass through each other without being disturbed, the net displacement at any point in space , will be simply the sum of the individual wave displacements.
