Diffraction and interference presentation

  1. Jan 5, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    my problem isnt exactly mathematical. im currently making a presentation on diffraction and interference and its asked me to make overheads containing

    main concept, scientific and theoretical background and other topics

    im confused on the difference between the theoretical and scientific as well as what it means when it asks for the main concept

    3. The attempt at a solution

    for the main concept ive just given definitions and diagrams demonstrating diffraction and interference

    while for the background info ive basically stated the progression from particle theory to wave theory to wave particle duality- though this doesnt seem the right place for background information on D+I

    i.e the backgrounds starts of with newton theory,then huygens, goes on to youngs slits- proof of light diffracting and interference of light and then on to the photoelectric effect
