from the disturbance.

from the disturbance.

TRUE

Wave Properties

• A disturbance may be a single pulse or


shock (hammer), or it may be periodic
(guitar string).

TRUE OR FALSE

• The two types of waves are longitudinal


and electromagnetic waves.

TRUE OR FALSE

• In Longitudinal wave the particle motion


and wave velocity (speed) are
perpendicular to each other.

Through an investigation, we will be able to:

• define amplitude and frequency;


• determine that waves are energy
carriers; and
• identify factors that affect waves.

Wave Description

Wave Characterization

• Frequency (f) – the number of oscillations or


cycles that occur during a given time (1 s)

• Period (T) – the time it takes for a wave to


travel a distance of one wavelength

1
• frequency = 1 / period f= T

1
• Period = 1 / frequency T= f

Wave Comparison

T= ¼ s

T= 1/8 s

Wave Velocity/ Speed (v)

• Since speed is distance/time then


• v = λ/T or v = λf
• v = wave velocity/ speed (m/s)
• λ = wavelength
• T = period of wave (s)
• f = frequency (Hz)

EXPERIMENT PROPER

• Everyone travels at their own wavelength or
frequency. For example, you might like a slow
paced, low-energy activity like reading, while
your friend may like to enjoy fast-paced high-
energy activities such as riding a bike.
• As a member of the Louisian community, how
do you keep the harmony of your waves and
maintain friendships with people not on the
“same wavelength”.

• Like waves, life has its ups and downs,
how do you get back up when life gets
you down?
