5 True/False questions

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


  2. Examples of mechanical wavesSound, ocean waves, earthquakes


  3. frequencythe 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. refractionthe bouncing back of a wave as it strikes a barrier


  5. 2 relationships for wavesRadio, infrared (IR), light
