5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. interference
  2. 2 relationships for waves
  3. refraction
  4. Examples of EM Waves
  5. constructive interference
  1. a when waves combine to a larger amplitude
  2. b the meeting and combining of waves
  3. c Radio, infrared (IR), light
  4. d 1) speed and frequency = directly proportional
    (as speed goes up, frequency goes up)
    2) wavelength and frequency = inversely proportional
    (as wavelength gets longer, frequency goes down)
  5. e the bending of a wave as it enters a new medium at an angle other than 90 degrees

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. any substance that a wave moves through
  2. electromagnetic wave; moves energy through space (sometimes empty space, sometimes through a medium)

  3. the distance from one wave crest to the very next crest. (This may also be measured from trough to trough.)
  4. the bouncing back of a wave as it strikes a barrier
  5. a straw looks "broken" when you look at it in a glass of water (because the light bends when it enters the water)

5 True/False questions

  1. trough
    lowest point (valley) of a wave

          

  2. destructive interferencewhen waves cancel each other out

          

  3. waveelectromagnetic wave; moves energy through space (sometimes empty space, sometimes through a medium)

          

  4. diffraction examplesa straw looks "broken" when you look at it in a glass of water (because the light bends when it enters the water)

          

  5. mechanical waveelectromagnetic wave; moves energy through space (sometimes empty space, sometimes through a medium)
