5 Matching questions

  1. diffraction examples
  2. trough
  3. EM Wave
  4. refraction
  5. wavelength
  1. a
    the distance from one wave crest to the very next crest. (This may also be measured from trough to trough.)
  2. b electromagnetic wave; moves energy through space (sometimes empty space, sometimes through a medium)
  3. c
    lowest point (valley) of a wave
  4. d light will bend around a lampshade; sounds can be heard even if you are hiding behind something
  5. e the bending of a wave as it enters a new medium at an angle other than 90 degrees

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. mirror (light waves), echo (sound waves), RADAR (radio waves)
  2. when waves combine to a larger amplitude

  3. for transverse waves: the distance between the resting point (or equilibrium) to the crest or trough
  4. Radio, infrared (IR), light
  5. the spreading out of waves through an opening or around the edges of an obstacle

5 True/False questions

  1. waveelectromagnetic wave; moves energy through space (sometimes empty space, sometimes through a medium)

          

  2. interferencethe 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

          

  3. Examples of mechanical wavesSound, ocean waves, earthquakes

          

  4. 2 relationships for wavesRadio, infrared (IR), light

          

  5. reflectionthe bouncing back of a wave as it strikes a barrier
