Waves test

How would this representation look different if it had twice the frequency There would be twice as many cycles(crest + trough) in the same space
How would it look different if if had twice the amplitude It would be twice as tall above and twice as deep below the at rest position
In the space below, draw a representation of a longitudinal wave.Label the following:compression, rarefaction, wavelength, and amplitude
How would this representation look different if it had twice the amplitude The compression would be twice as dense(more squished)
A longitudinal wave can also be called a wave Compressional
The amplitude is related to the energy of the wave. If the energy of the wave increases, then the amplitude will be. A tsunami is an example of an high energy wave. Larger
For a transverse wave, the medium moves the energy of the wave.For a longitudinal wave, the medium moves in this case, the movement is in the form of vibrations, and the matter have a net forward motion Perpendicular to, In the same direction as ,does not
A wave does NOT have to have a medium, so it can actually travel through space. On the other hand, a wave must have a medium. It's velocity depends on the density of the medium, so it will have its greatest velocity in a medium. Transverse,longitudinal, solid
Waves with wavelengths like AM radio,diffract more easily Longer
Interference occurs when a crest of one wave overlaps a crest of another wave Constructive,larger,destructive,larger
The natural frequency of a vibrating string is 11 hz 11hz 22hz antinode node
Light waves, while sound waves are Transverse,longitudinal
