How is the average energy of the resulting oscillations related to the sum of the average energies brought by each of the waves separately, in the interference maxima and minima? Where does the energy brought by the waves into the interference minima “disappear”?
The energy of the resulting oscillations in the interference maxima exceeds the sum of the average energies carried by the waves. The energy of the resulting oscillations in the interference minima is less than the sum of the average energies brought by the waves. During interference, the energy of the oscillations is redistributed in space.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
