After this lesson, you should be able to:

  • Define pulse, transverse pulse
  • Define amplitude of pulse as a maximum disturbance of a particle of the medium from the rest position
  • Know that in transverse pulses the particles of the medium move at right angles to the direction of propagation of the pulse
  • Define constructive and destructive interference of pulses
  • Apply the principle of superposition of pulses with the help of diagrams
