# Chapter 1 Waves

### Study for the Chapter 1 waves review.

Frequency= Speed/ Wavelength
Frequency at which a standing wave occurs. Resonant Frequency
Wave that consists of a combination if transverse and longitudinal waves and occurs at the surface between two different mediums. Surface Wave
Wavelength= Speed/Frequency
Speed= Frequency x Wavelength
What occurs when vibrations traveling through an object match the object's natural frequency? Resonant Frequency
Why to waves travel through a medium? The energy travels from particle to particle.
When a wave hits a surface through which it CANNOT pass and bounces back, it undergoes Reflection
Why do you see lightning from a distant storm before you hear thunder? Light travels faster than sound.
Compressions and rarefractions are characteristic of what type of wave? Longitudinal Waves
Waves combine to produce a smaller or zero-amplitude wave in a process called Destructive Interference
The distance between two consecutive crests of a wave is called the Wavelength
What is frequency measured in? Hertz
How are mechanical waves classified? According to how they move
The bending of waves around the edge of a barrier is known as Diffraction
The beding of waves due to the change in speed is called Refraction
The speed of a wave is 20 m/sec. If the wavelength of the wave is 2 meters, what is the frequency of the wave? 20m/s divided by 2m= 10Hz
A wave has a frequency of 10Hz and velocity of 5m/s. What is the wavelengthof this wave? 5m/s divided by 10hz= 0.5m
A wave with a frequency of 20Hz has a wavelength of 10 meters. At what speed will this wave travel? 20Hz times 10m= 200m/s
A wave with a frequency of 40Hz has a wavelength of 20 meters. At which speed will this wave travel? 40Hz times 20m= 400m/s
