- After completing this module you will be able to mathematically
describe a sinusoidal wave and know the relationships between wavelength,
frequency, and speed. You will have explored interference and
will be able
to describe a standing wave and a wave packet.
- After completing this module, you will be able to qualitatively describe
electromagnetic waves and to identify
different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. You will be
able to calculate diffraction patterns produced by a single slit, two slits,
and a diffraction grating.
- After completing this module you will be able to calculate the
energy and momentum of the photons associated with an electromagnetic wave
of a given frequency. You will have explored various interpretations
of single photon interference.
