Q. 4

Which of the following properties show that light is a transverse wave?
A. Reflection

B. Interference

C. Diffraction

D. Polarization

Answer :

Reflection, interference and diffraction are properties shown by both transverse and longitudinal waves. Hence, polarization so the correct option. Also, light is a transverse wave with a certain polarization. Hence, if a slit is arranged in any direction other than the polarization angle, light would be completely blocked.
