  1. destructive interference
  2. diffraction examples
  3. amplitude
  4. refraction examples
  5. EM Wave
  1. a electromagnetic wave; moves energy through space (sometimes empty space, sometimes through a medium)
  2. b when waves cancel each other out
  3. c light will bend around a lampshade; sounds can be heard even if you are hiding behind something
  4. d a straw looks "broken" when you look at it in a glass of water (because the light bends when it enters the water)
  5. e
    for transverse waves: the distance between the resting point (or equilibrium) to the crest or trough

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. the number of waves passing a fixed point in a certain amount of time; it is based partly on wavelength (longer wavelengths take a longer time to pass) and partly on the speed the wave travels
  2. a disturbance that transfers energy from one place to another
  3. the meeting and combining of waves

  4. the distance from one wave crest to the very next crest. (This may also be measured from trough to trough.)
  5. the bending of a wave as it enters a new medium at an angle other than 90 degrees

5 True/False Questions

  1. Examples of EM WavesSound, ocean waves, earthquakes

          

  2. crest
    highest point (peak) of a wave

          

  3. 2 relationships for wavesRadio, infrared (IR), light

          

  4. trough
    lowest point (valley) of a wave

          

  5. diffractionthe bending of a wave as it enters a new medium at an angle other than 90 degrees
