In our everyday environment, diffraction is much more evident for sound waves than for light waves. Why is this so?
Answer & Explanation
Diffraction is bending of a wave, when it goes through slit which width is close to wavelength of that wave.
In everyday life we can "see" diffraction of sound, because its wavelength is much larger than light, and slits which have width of that dimension can be found in our environment.
