Electromagnetic waves for communicating

Keywords: carrier wave modulation

Objectives:

Must – State which types of electromagnetic waves are used for communication. (C/D)

Should – Understand how information is carried using electromagnetic waves. (C/B)

Could – Consider why we use specific electromagnetic waves for carrying information. (A/A*)

Complete the table whilst we are discussing the types of radiation.

Visible light, is used in fibre optics, and Morse code........

Microwaves are used in mobile phones, satellite TV, and sat-nav.

Not absorbed by the earths atmosphere, can be transmitted into space.

Radio signals, terrestrial TV, and walky-talkies

Infra red is used for:

Remote controls  These waves can only travel short distances in air.

We are going to see how signals are actually broadcast as a wave..... Today’s Jazzy simulation

How are sound waves broadcast through the air?

1st we need a high frequency carrier wave....

Then we need to add the sound wave to it that we want to transmit

This gives us a modulated carrier wave

We are going to see how signals are actually broadcast as a wave.....

Pupils make their own waves using audacity

Complete questions on worksheet.
