Concept Checker for Two-Point Source Interference Patterns Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Two-Point Source Interference Patterns simulation consists of 32 questions organized into 8 Question Groups. Students must correctly answer one question from each Question Group to earn the Trophy for this Concept Checker.

Like all our Concept Checkers, it is designed to be used as a follow-up to the use of the Two-Point Source Interference Patterns simulation. We recommend the use of our classroom-ready exercise with the simulation.

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcomes:
  • The student should be able to identify nodes, antinodes, nodal lines, and antinodal lines on a two-point source interference pattern.
  • The student should be able to describe the effect of varying wavelength and source separation distance upon the features of the pattern.
  • The students should be able to determine the S1P distance, S2P distance, and path difference for a point on a nodal or an antinodal line.
