Which wave is the highest of the ones in
b) Where is the energy in the waves
the most spread out?
c) Explain how can each of the waves
have equal amounts of energy.
Draw a transverse wave. Label the
crest and the trough.
Which direction is the motion of a transverse
Draw a longitudinal wave. Label the
compression and rarefaction.
Which direction is the motion of a longitudinal
Use a diagram to show why sound waves travel faster through solids and liquids than in the air.
Draw the same wave with a higher amplitude, but the same frequency
Draw the same wave with the same amplitude,
but a higher frequency
If a wave has a shorter wavelength, the
wave has a higher ________________.
Use a diagram to show how the Doppler effect
produces high frequency as something making a sound approaches and a lower
frequency as it moves away.
Give an example of each of the following (Your example can use light, sound, or any other type of wave).
Give an example (not a drawing) of a standing
