WM2.4 Young's Experiment Using Microwaves

The apparatus consists of two microwave generators and one meter. The generators are placed a small distance away from each other, facing the same direction. The meter is carried by the instructor in front of the generators. The meter, big enough so that the class sees the needle move, shows peaks and zeros of the interfering waves. An AC hum can be used as an auditory indicator of intensity. The wavelength of the microwaves is 12cm.
