Professor Sylvia Ceyer devotes this lecture to discussing the wavelike properties of radiation. She covers oscillation vs. propagation in light, calculating the speed of a wave, and the visible light spectrum. She then moves on to the wave nature of light, highlighting a few new terms including superposition, constructive, and destructive interference. In conclusion, the wavelike properties of radiation are discussed as they relate to Young's two slit experiment. The general conditions for constructive interference and destructive interference are identified.
