I know that constructive interference of wave particles causes the amplitude of the combined waves to increase and that in the case of destructive interference, the amplitude decreases, but I am confused about what the significance of the changes in amplitude mean. I'd appreciate it if someone could explain the significance. Thank you.
The significance of amplitude is that it measures the amount of energy a wave carries, so it will determine the intensity of a wave in comparison to other waves with different amplitudes. The higher the amplitude, the greater the intensity of the wave. Hope that helps!
The way I understood it is that changes in amplitude measures the amount of photons in a wave this means that the increase in amplitude would increase the amount of energy.
