The Mathematics of Waves. The Mathematics of Waves. As if there weren’t enough categories for types of waves yet… We can look at 2 different types of mathematical waves Pulse Waves Periodic Waves Much of this class will look at periodic waves. Pulse Waves.
The Mathematics of Waves
The amplitude of an ocean wave is 2.00 m high. If the wave doubles in height, by what factor does the energy carried by the wave increase?
Yellow light has a frequency of 508 THz. If the yellow light has a wavelength of 570 nm, what is the velocity of yellow light?
The velocity of sound through air is 340 m/s. Middle C on a piano has a frequency of 261.6 Hz. What is the wavelength of middle C?
Blue light has a frequency of 606 THz and a wavelength of 450.0 nm. How long would it take blue light to reach the Earth from the Sun if the Earth is 1.496*108 km away?
