Difference between Refraction and Diffraction?


The difference between Diffraction and Refraction is the wave properties. The direction of the wave is another difference. Spreading occurs in the diffraction process.

Diffraction is the bending of a wave when it passes through a gap comparable to its wavelength. Refraction is the change in the path, speed and wavelength of a wave when it passes
Refraction is the bending of a wave of light, heat, or
Ok, here's an example: You see refraction when you put a straw into a glass of water - the angle of the light that's transmitted through changes speed when it enters the water, hits
Diffraction is when an object goes through an object (the medium, usually something with some kind of an opening) and then spreads outward. Refraction goes through an object (the
