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
They both involve waves (any kind of wave, not just light) and they both involve the wave changing its direction of travel. Refraction happens when a wave enters a region where its
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
