5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. Examples of mechanical waves
  2. reflection
  3. 2 relationships for waves
  4. refraction
  5. frequency
  1. a Sound, ocean waves, earthquakes
  2. b the bending of a wave as it enters a new medium at an angle other than 90 degrees
  3. c 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
  4. d the bouncing back of a wave as it strikes a barrier
  5. e 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. the meeting and combining of waves
  2. a disturbance that transfers energy from one place to another

  3. for transverse waves: the distance between the resting point (or equilibrium) to the crest or trough
  4. a straw looks "broken" when you look at it in a glass of water (because the light bends when it enters the water)
  5. any substance that a wave moves through

5 True/False questions

  1. EM Wavea disturbance that transfers energy from one place to another

          

  2. destructive interferencewhen waves cancel each other out

          

  3. Waves caused by vibrations of atomsInfrared

          

  4. constructive interferencewhen waves combine to a larger amplitude

          

  5. wavelengtha disturbance that transfers energy from one place to another
