Waves: Sound & Light
Terms in this set (24)
a traveling disturbance that transfers energy, not matter
the highest point of a transverse wave
the lowest point of a transverse wave
in a transverse wave, the greatest distance from rest
the distance between two consecutive, similar points on a wave
the particles of a wave move perpendicular (90 degrees) to the direction of the wave
the particles of a wave move parallel to the direction of the wave
the material through which a wave travels
waves that do not require a medium; light is an example
waves that require a medium; sound is an example
bending of a wave due to a change in medium
in a longitudinal wave, the place where there are more particles
in a longitudinal wave, the place where there are less particles
the action of a wave bouncing off an object
a description of how high or low a sound seems
a repeated back-and-forth or up-and-down motion
the number of complete waves that pass a given point in a certain amount of time
Electromagnetic waves with the longest wavelengths and lowest frequencies. They include broadcast waves for television.
Radio waves with the shortest wavelengths and the highest frequencies. Includes cell phones and radar.
Electromagnetic waves with wavelengths shorter than radio, but longer than visible light. Heat lamps are an example.
Electromagnetic waves that are visible to the human eye.
Electromagnetic waves with wavelengths shorter than visible light, but longer than x-rays. These waves carry a lot of energy and can be dangerous.
Electromagnetic waves with wavelengths shorter than UV rays, but longer than gamma rays. These carry a lot of energy and can penetrate most matter.
Electromagnetic waves with the shortest wavelengths and highest frequencies. These carry the greatest amount of energy and can be produced from nuclear reactions.

Consider a mixture of 10 billion 02 molecules and 10 billion H2 molecules. In what way is this mixture similar to a sample containing 10 billion hydrogen peroxide (H202) molecules? In what way is it different?
To get a feel for higher order ODEs, show that the given functions are solutions and form a basis on any interval. Use Wronskians. x>0. cos x, sin x, x cos x, x sin x, $$ y^iv+2y''+y=0 $$
Write three things you might do to help reduce the number of teens at your school who drink alcohol.
Discuss the following problem. Consider a signaling pathway that proceeds through three protein kinases that are sequentially activated by phosphorylation. In one case, the kinases are held in a signaling complex by a scaffolding protein; in the other, the kinases are freely diffusible. Discuss the properties of these two types of organization in terms of signal amplification, speed, and potential for cross-talk between signaling pathways.
