(ii) Observe Figure 6.2. Compare the
wave patterns and the wavelengths of
the waves before and after they pass
through the gaps. Relate the size of
the gaps, the wave patterns and the
wavelengths to deduce a relevant
physics concept.

## (region ) crest /convex

shape / convex lens

## Light is focussed on the crest

produce bright region

## (region ) trough /concave

shape / concave lens

## Light is diverged on the trough

produce dark region

## (d) Diagram 10.3 shows two thin copper strips, PQ

and RS connected to a circuit

## 1 - When current flows the magnetic field is

formed // Diagram
2 The flow of current is in the apposite
direction // Diagram
3 The magnetic field between the two plates are
in the same direction // Diagram
4 The two pieces of thin copper repulse against
one another // Diagram
Explain what happens to PQ and RS, when the switch is on.
