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 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?
