MAAP Review P.8.6

Motions, Forces, and Energy

This is when light energy strikes an object and is changed to heat energy. The process of retaining radiation without reflecting it. absorption
In a transverse wave, this is the magnitude of height of a wave from origin to crest. In a longitudinal wave, this is corresponds to how much the wave is compressed, as compared to areas of little compression. amplitude
The place of maximum displacement on a standing wave. antinode
This is the color of objects that do not reflect light from any part of the visible spectrum; they absorb all frequencies of visible light. black
Also called a longitudinal wave, they are waves whose direction of vibration is the same as their direction of travel.They produce compression and rarefaction when traveling through a medium. compression wave
This is a lens that has at least one surface that curves inward concave lens
This is a lens which is thicker in the middle than on the ends. It refracts parallel light rays so they come together at a single point, called the focal point. convex lens
Mirror that is a reflecting surface that bulges inward or away from the incident light. Such mirrors reflect light inward to one focal point and can produce a real image. concave mirror
Mirror that is a reflecting surface in which the reflective surface bulges toward the light source. Such mirrors reflect light outwards and always form a virtual image. convex mirror
This is a measure of sound pressure level. decibel
This is a measure of mass per unit volume. density
This is a geologic event that occurs when tectonic plates are shifted violently. earthquake
The complete range of light waves organized by wavelength/frequency. electromagnetic spectrum
A propagating wave in space with electric and magnetic components. These components oscillate at right angles to each other. It may travel in a vacuum. electromagnetic wave
This is the number of complete movements of a wave per second. frequency
This is anything with mass that occupies space. matter
This is the material in which a mechanical wave travels. mechanical
The place on a standing wave where no motion occurs due to destructive interference node
This is any material that allows no light waves to be transmitted through. Light waves are either absorbed or reflected. opaque
This is a type of electromagnetic wave used for communications and Astronomy. radio wave
The bouncing back of a wave from a surface. reflection
This is any material that transmits some light, but causes the light to be scattered so no clear image is seen. translucent
This is any material that that transmits most of the light that strikes to pass through and only a small amount of light is reflected or absorbed. transparent
This is the distance from the peak to a peak of a successive wave. wavelength
As wavelength increases, frequency _______________________ decreases
The higher the frequency, the ___________________ the energy higher
A wave which needs a medium (solid, liquid, gas) in order to propagate itself mechanical
