Interference and diffraction, Physics

INTERFERENCE and DIFFRACTION:

INTERFERENCE: The physical effect of super position of waves from two sources vibrating with same frequency and amplitude is called the interference of waves. 

DIFFRACTION : The bending of a wave or its deviation from the original direction of propagation when it meets a small obstacle is called diffraction.
