Thinking about a wave pool, how could you increase the frequency of the waves?
You need to constantly push the waves really fast so that the waves will be coming out with a high frequency.
What is the relationship between wavelength and frequency?
The higher the frequency the shorter the wavelength. The lower the frequency the longer the wavelength.
Thinking about a wave pool, how could you increase the amplitude of the waves?
You need to push the waves out with more eergy so that the waves will be taller.
In a sound or water wave is there more energy at the source or the receiver?
It would be at the source.
Explain why white light gets split up into ROYGBIV.
The different colors have different wavelengths and that means that they will bend at different angles.
Describe what happens to water waves, sound waves and light waves when you increase frequency.
Water waves: The number of waves increase over a time period
Sound waves: The pitch gets higher
Light waves: The color changes
Describe what happens to water waves, sound waves and light waves when you increase amplitude.
Water waves: The height increases
Sound waves: The loudness increases
Light waves: The brightness increases
Describe what happens to water waves, sound waves and light waves when you increase wavelength.
Water waves: The wavelength will get longer
Sound waves: The pitch will change
Light waves: The color will change
Describe the sense pathway for sight starting with the source and ending with the brain.
The light will come to your eyes and then it will travel on a nerve and then it will eventually reach your brain.
Describe the sense pathway for hearing starting with the source and ending with the brain.
The sound goes to your ears and travel on a nerve and then it will eventually reach your brain.
Why does sound travel faster than light? Give an example.
This scenario only occurs in one medium. That medium is solid. The light gets trapped by the solid particles and the sound passes through.
How does sound travel from the TV to your ears?
The sound goes through the speaker and transmits to the particles in the air and then it will eventually reach your ears.
Describe how sound and light waves behave differently in space.
Light travels through space and onto Earth because light does not need a medium to travel. Sound however does not travel in space because sound needs a medium to travel.
