What is the equation for the radiation flux? F = P / A
What is the name give to the particles of light? Photons

Points that are wavelength / 2 apart oscillate in . . . antiphase
What is the principle of superposition? Where two or more waves meet, the total displacement at any point is the sum of the displacements that each individual wave would cause at that point.
What is the lowest frequency at which resonance occurs? Fundamental Frequency OR First Harmonic
