Incomplete destructive and constructive interference

  1. Oct 25, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What are the values of incomplete destructive and constructive interference?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    when the path difference is in between 1 wavelength and 0.5 wavelength, there would be "incomplete" destructive interference. From my teacher's comment

    However, if it is incomplete constructive interference, does it mean that it is 0.5 wavelength to zero?

    Sorry yeah =)
