Included here is a PowerPoint of this lesson and lesson plan complete with point by point teaching, homework recommendations and curriculum link; everything that you need to teach this lesson.
Nature of longitudinal and transverse waves
Examples to include: sound, electromagnetic waves, and waves on a string
Students are expected to know the direction of displacement of particles / fields relative to the direction of energy propagation and that all electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed in a vacuum.
Polarisation as evidence for the nature of transverse waves.
Applications of polarisers to include Polaroid material and the alignment of aerials for transmission and reception.
