Worksheet on radio waves and their usage in popular media. Students choose different local radio stations, research the frequency of the radio wave, and use the wave equation to solve for the wavelength. They then rank the radio stations in order of least to most energy.

Excellent example of a practical, everyday application for the wave equation.

NGSSHS-PS4-1
Use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media. Examples of data could include electromagnetic radiation traveling in a vacuum and glass, sound waves traveling through air and water, and seismic waves traveling through the earth. Assessment is limited to algebraic relationships and describing those relationships qualitatively.
NGSSHS-PS4-5
Communicate technical information about how some technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture information and energy. Examples could include solar cells capturing light and converting it to electricity; medical imaging; and communications technology. Assessments are limited to qualitative information. Assessments do not include band theory.
