# Physics 11

Can someone give me an accurate definition on "Principle of Superposition"?

Extra info: Im studying Physics 11, Sound Unit

1. There is a good discussion of the principle or law of superposition, as applied to wave motion, at
http://paws.kettering.edu/~drussell/Demos/superposition/superposition.html

The principle is also used in many other fields of physics and engineering
