no, it's diffraction
It is called diffraction.
The bending of a light wave as it passes around a barrier is calledrefraction. Refraction during a rain storm will lead to thedevelopment of beautiful rainbows.
Diffraction. Your welcome to shower needed it(:
Yes, sound waves exist which are not audible to the human ear. Humans can hear sound waves having frequency between 20 - 20,000 Hz. Other all frequencies lie outside our heari…ng range and are called ultrasonic or supersonic waves.
The phenomenon is known as diffraction.
What is the bending of sound waves around a corner and the reason people can hear others talking around a corner?
Diffraction. You can hear people talking around the corner because Sound waves do not always travel in a straight line and sound waves spread out after passing throught a door…way. :)
