5 Matching questions

  1. wave
  2. 2 relationships for waves
  3. frequency
  4. refraction examples
  5. Examples of mechanical waves
  1. a a straw looks "broken" when you look at it in a glass of water (because the light bends when it enters the water)
  2. b a disturbance that transfers energy from one place to another
  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 Sound, ocean waves, earthquakes
  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 bending of a wave as it enters a new medium at an angle other than 90 degrees

  2. the distance from one wave crest to the very next crest. (This may also be measured from trough to trough.)
  3. the bouncing back of a wave as it strikes a barrier
  4. electromagnetic wave; moves energy through space (sometimes empty space, sometimes through a medium)

  5. highest point (peak) of a wave

5 True/False questions

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

          

  2. trough
    lowest point (valley) of a wave

          

  3. amplitudeany substance that a wave moves through

          

  4. constructive interferencewhen waves cancel each other out

          

  5. Examples of EM WavesSound, ocean waves, earthquakes
