Name Period Date Cover Sheet-Block 6 Wave Properties Standards-Physics 4 a b c d 4a. Students know waves carry energy from one place to another. 4. b. Students know how to identify transverse and longitudinal waves in mechanical media, such as springs and ropes, and on the earth (seismic waves). 4. c. Students know how to solve problems involving wavelength, frequency, and wave speed. 4. d. Students know sound is a longitudinal wave whose speed depends on the properties of the medium in which it propagates. Objective –Waves What are waves? Waves carry energy / information from one place to another using oscillation Wave PropertiesIdentify theses oscillations using terms like wavelength, amplitude, frequency, propagation direction and speed. Identify transverse and longitudinal waves in mechanical media, such as springs and ropes, and on the earth (seismic waves). Wave BehaviorUnderstand wave motion in a material and in a vacuum. Describe constructive and destructive interference of more than 1 wave and /or a material. Sound is a longitudinal wave whose speed depends on the properties of the medium in which it propagates. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Critical thinking 2 Explain the phrase, “Two waves constructively interfere.” Wrap-up Draw Longitudinal or Compression Wave Name Period Date Page #3 Vocabulary 19 total Pg. 183-190 11 words 1) Transverse pulse or wave: motion of medium perpendicular to motion 2) Amplitude: the height of a wave crest, it’s the energy amount 3) Periodic wave: a repetitive pulses, ocean wave’s 4) Standing wave: wave moves between two points, “jump-rope” 5) Crest: the highest point of a wave 6) Wavelength: the distance between consecutive points of a wave “Crest to crest” 7) Frequency: the number of waves produced per unit of time, reciprocal of the Period 8) Compression pulse or wave: longitudinal, caused by compression and expansion. “Sound” 9) Longitudinal pulse or wave: the motion of the medium is parallel to the wave motion. “Traffic” 10) Trough: the lowest point of a wave 11) Node: a spot on a standing wave where the medium is motionless Pg. 196 1 word 12) Pitch: the quality of a sound dependent primarily on the frequency of the sound waves produced by the source Some other Vocabulary from Standards 13) Vacuum – no air 14) Light waves – electromagnetic spectrum 15) Sound waves – Need medium (material) to travel 16) Wave propagating – movement of wave through material 17) Expansion (rarefaction) – spreading of material during wave 18) Acoustic waves – sound wave from vibration in a “hole” 19) Wave speed – equal to frequency times wavelength Name Period Date Page 4 Hw pg. 190-193 Physics to go # 2-6 Name Period Date Page 5 Notes Each Line Answers a Test Question 1) A wave is a repeating disturbance that transfers energy through matter or open space. 2) Waves that use matter to transfer energy are called mechanical waves. 3) Light waves travel in both a vacuum and a medium 4) The matter through which a mechanical wave travels is called a medium 5) In transverse waves, matter in the medium moves back and forth at right angles to the direction the wave travels. 6) In Longitudinal or compressional waves, matter in the medium moves forward and backward in the same direction the wave travels. 7) Sound waves are compressional waves. 8) Sound waves cannot travel in outer space because they are mechanical waves they travel through a medium 9) What is the region of a compressional wave where particles are far apart called? rarefaction 10) What type of wave does not require matter to carry energy? Transverse 11) Amplitude is a measure of the energy in a wave. 12) A transverse wave has amplitude 13) The Wavelength is the distance from the top of one crest of a transverse wave to the top of the next crest in that wave. 14) The frequency of a wave is how many wavelengths pass a fixed point each second Name Period Date Page 6 Problems Wave Properties 1. Right next to each picture, which wave above is a transverse wave? A longitudinal wave? 2. On the transverse wave, label a crest and a trough. On the longitudinal wave, label a compression and a rarefaction. 3. If the above wave completes about 6 cycles in 2 seconds, what is this wave’s frequency? 4. What is the period of a wave? 5. If the above wave completes about 6 cycles in 2 seconds, what is this wave’s period? 6. What is the relationship between the period of a wave and it’s frequency?
