5 Matching questions

  1. reflection
  2. diffraction examples
  3. crest
  4. destructive interference
  5. Examples of EM Waves
  1. a
    highest point (peak) of a wave
  2. b light will bend around a lampshade; sounds can be heard even if you are hiding behind something
  3. c the bouncing back of a wave as it strikes a barrier
  4. d when waves cancel each other out
  5. e Radio, infrared (IR), light

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the spreading out of waves through an opening or around the edges of an obstacle
  2. the meeting and combining of waves

  3. for transverse waves: the distance between the resting point (or equilibrium) to the crest or trough

  4. lowest point (valley) of a wave
  5. when waves combine to a larger amplitude

5 True/False questions

  1. mechanical wavewaves that transfer energy through matter


  2. mediumany substance that a wave moves through


  3. Examples of mechanical wavesSound, ocean waves, earthquakes


  4. 2 relationships for waves1) 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. wavelength
    the distance from one wave crest to the very next crest. (This may also be measured from trough to trough.)
