Description

This worksheet is a review of the basic properties of transverse and longitudinal waves.

Concepts Reviewed:

1. Measuring wave frequency, wavelength (in cm), amplitude and speed of transverse waves.

2. Measuring frequency, wavelength and speed of longitudinal waves.

3. Students are also challenged to draw their own waves of a certain frequency. Lastly, students are asked to compare waves based on their speed and frequency.

Students will need to be familiar with the following vocabulary to complete the worksheet on their own:

· wavelength

· transverse wave

· wave frequency

· sound wave

· amplitude

· compression

· wave speed

· rarefaction

· longitudinal wave

Use mathematical representations to describe a simple model for waves that includes how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave. Emphasis is on describing waves with both qualitative and quantitative thinking. Assessment does not include electromagnetic waves and is limited to standard repeating waves.
