Question 1

Seismic Waves

Waves that travel through the Earth are called ____________.

Question 2

Medium

Sounds waves require a ___________

Question 3

Transverse

A wave in which particle motion is perpendicular to wave motion

Question 4

Electromagnetic Wave

A wave consisting of oscillating electromagnetic fields, traveling at the speed of light

Question 5

Sine

The __________ curve is a good mathematical representation for representing transverse and especially longitudinal waves.

Question 6

amplitude

How loud a sound is depends on the ________ of the wave.

Question 7

Period

As the frequencies decreases, the __________ would increase.

Question 8

frequencies

The color of light is determined by the _______________ of the light waves.

Question 9

Decreasing, increasing, and higher

As an ambulance approaching you, the wavelength is _________, the frequency is ________, and the pitch is getting ____________.

Question 10

Kinetic Theory

Explains why the speed of waves is faster in a solid, than liquids, or gases. Based on organization of matter.

Question 11

refraction

When light passes from air to glass, the light may change direction due to ______________.

Question 12

Destructive

Nodes in a standing wave are

the result of __________

Interference.

Question 13

Destructive interference

In _________________, waves combine so that the resulting wave is smaller than the largest of the original waves.

Question 14

diffraction

The change in direction of a wave when in encounters an obstacle or edge

Question 15

Principle of Superposition

Method of adding crest and troughs of interfering waves together to describe a new wave.

Question 16

20m

A wave with a frequency of .5 Hz has a speed of 10m/s has a wavelength of _____________m.

Question 17

25 m/s

What is the speed of a wave with a frequency of 5 Hz and a wavelength of 5m?

Questions 18
