# State the Conditions to Get Constructive and Destructive Interference of Light. - Physics

ConceptInterference of Light

#### Question

State the conditions to get constructive and destructive interference of light.

#### Solution

For constructive interference, the path difference should be even multiple of lambda/2 or phase difference should be 2πn. Where n =  0,1, 2....

For destructive interference, the path difference should be the odd multiple of lambda/2

or (2n - 1)lambda/2 or phase difference should be the odd multiple of π i.e., (2n - 1)π
