Explain two features to distinguish between the interference pattern in Young's double slit experiment with the diffraction pattern obtained due to a single slit.
Difference between Interference and Diffraction
Interference occurs due to superposition of two distinct waves coming from two coherent sources of light. The diffraction occurs as a result of the secondary wavelets coming from different parts of the same wavefront.
In the pattern of the interference, all the bright fringes have same intensity. In a diffraction pattern, all the bright fringes are not of the same intensity.
