Homework Help: Wave fronts

  1. Dec 15, 2004 #1
    In the diagram shown:

    All points on any one wave front shown must be:

    a) traveling with the same speed
    b) traveling in the same medium
    c) in phase
    d) superposed

    We never did wave fronts in class, and this is a question on my graded review packet for our final. I think the answer is d, am I correct? I'm pretty sure it's not a or b, because the waves would be changing speed and medium.
