• Thanks for the upload, Could you please make a video about Doppler effect and Red shift?

• @Tareq Ahmed I’ll look into it

• Would the waves be moving towards each other when adding?

• Appreciate this reply is 4 years late. But I believe this would be applied in any situation where waves of the same type are moving along different vectors (speed or direction) and interfere with each other.

• Thank You very much
You have cleared my concept in just 3 minutes 🙂

• thank u so much i didn’t understand this until I watched this video thank u

• Could some one help me with this question please?

• just realised i cant be a physicst

• hippoz hipos why is that?

• because i have exam of physics tomorrow and i didnt know about concept of these simple waves till now

• @Hippøz Hipos XD

• it was excellent sir i hope u can provide new topics nxt time

• What pens do you use?

• Sigma

• life saver thanks sir

• oh my god thank you!!!

• thank you very much you just switched on my mind in few minutes

• lit

• So what is the definition of superposition and what is it??

• Superpositon is when two waves are overlapping each other.
When two waves are superimposed, they will interfere with each other. (the magnitude of the displacements of the waves combine to form the resultant wave) and that is what the video is explaining.

• @Laura Maniscalco this explanation is the one which is looking for… Tq

• thank you so much!

• Nice, this is great for BTEC applied science as well 😀

• Butterfly Simmer yup

• brilliant ….

• I missed the part where you say what is superposition, no matter how much I rewind and review the video. So I will deduce that superposition is sum of waves.

• This isn’t the all there is still phase difference and beats and also stand waves can superimposed to

• Why don’t radar waves superposition on each other?

• When ur 14 and u do as level physics cuz u skipped class. This is really hard for me to understand. 😞

• This was amazing, my textbook did a horrible job of explaining it.
