Which of the following actions would make a pulse travel faster down a stretched string?

1. Move your hand up and down more quickly as you generate the pulse.

2. Move your hand up and down a larger distance as you generate the pulse.

3. Use a heavier string of the same length, under the same tension.

4. Use a lighter string of the same length, under the same tension.

5. Use a longer string of the same thickness, density and tension.

A light wave travels through three transparent materials of equal thickness. Rank is order, from the largest to smallest, the indices of refraction n1, n2, and n3.

1. n2 > n1 > n3

2. n3 > n1 > n2

3. n1 > n2 > n3

4. n3 > n2 > n1

5. n1 = n2 = n3

A wave front diagram shows

1. the wavelengths of a wave.

2. the crests of a wave.

3. how the wave looks as it moves toward you.

4. the forces acting on a string that’s under tension.

5. Wave front diagrams were not discussed in this chapter.
