In a certain sense, sound can indeed circumvent barriers. The fact that light is also a wave has been recognized therefore very much later than sound. The basis for the understanding of interference and diffraction is given by Huygens Principle The subsequent propagation of an arbitrarily given wavefront is determined by treating each point of the wavefront as the source of a secondary spherical wave and then obtaining the ‘new’ wavefront to be the envelope of all these coherent spherical waves.

Airy disk On the other hand, behind a small disk casting shadow there is always a bright spot at the center which is called the Poisson spot. Light must have entered the geometrical shadow region. Diffraction phenomena are observed only when the linear dimensions of the diffracting barriers or holes are of the same order of magnitude as the wavelength of the light or even smaller. In the optical region (small wavelengths) there are therefore not so many diffraction phenomena which belong to our daily experience.

5). 1=2/kB T is allotted to each degree of freedom of the (linear) particle motion. That is the statement of the classical equipartition theorem. The model picture of the kinetic theory of gases leads also to quantitative information about transport phenomena like the internal friction, the heat conduction, and the diffusion of gases. However, for that additional knowledge is needed about the particle density, the mean free path, and the diameter of the molecules, where, in particular, the definition of the diameter of a particle is problematic.
