Wave Properties: Reflection, Refraction, Diffraction and Polarisation – A Level Physics

53,755
Published on January 26, 2015 by

Both transverse and longitudinal waves share similar properties that you must be familiar with to understand further topics like lenses and interference, but only transverse waves can be polarised.

The App running is called Ripple Free by Paul Falstad: http://www.falstad.com/apps/RippleTankFree/ Have a go with it to investigate these effects, and many others, yourself.

Thanks for watching,

Lewis

    Hi, thanks for your videos. I just wanted to ask, as a student that is going to do AS/A levels next year, so I just finished my gcse mocks, which A level videos should I watch first?
