FINAL

• What is transferred by waves as they move from one place to another.

What is energy?

• What is not transfer as waves move from one place to another.

What is matter or material

• All mechanical waves need this.

What is a medium.

• This aspect of a wave shows wave energy.

What is amplitude?

• The number of waves passing a fixed point in a given amount of time.

What is frequency?

• A surface wave on an ocean is an example of this wave type.

What is a transverse wave?

• Sound waves are an example of a mechanical wave but they are also an example of this wave type.

What is a longitudinal wave?

• People make this wave at Seahawk games.

What is a transverse wave?

• In this wave the direction of the disturbance is perpendicular to the direction of the wave.

What is a transverse wave?

• In this wave the direction of the disturbance is in the same direction as the wave.

What is a longitudinal wave?

• The rate of disturbances.

What is frequency?

• The size of a wave from middle to crest or middle to trough.

What is amplitude?

• The speed of a wave that has a frequency of 6 hertz, an amplitude of 5 cm, and a wavelength of 7 cm.

What is 42 cm per second.

• In a consistent medium, the wave with the smaller wavelength will have a frequency that is this.

What is higher.

• This determines the speed of a wave.

What is its medium

• This area of a longitudinal wave is where most of the molecules collide.

What is a compression.

• This area of a longitudinal wave is where the molecules are most spread out.

• .

What is a rarefaction.

• The reducing of the amplitude of two waves. This occurs when the crest of one wave joins with the trough of another.

What is destructive interference?

• If the temperature in a room decreases, the speed of a sound wave will do this.

What is decrease?

• Frequency and wavelength have this type of relationship.

What is inversely proportional

• What an increase in the frequency of a wave sounds like.

What is a higher pitch?

• The unit of measure that is most commonly used to describe the frequency of a sound wave.

What is Hertz?

• When the amplitude of a sound wave is reduced we notice that this is how it sounds.

What is quieter.

• The unit used to measure the loudness of sounds.

What is decibels?

• The size of the wavelength of a high pitch sound compared to a low pitch sound.

What is shorter?

Why does the Carlos Santana slide his hand down the guitar neck when he wants to play a high note? Use vibration, frequency, and pitch in your answer.

He shortens the string which makes it vibrate faster. The faster vibration means a higher frequency and high frequency means higher pitch.
