1 Waves 1 Chapter 25

2 Vocabulary Wave Vibratory disturbance that propagates (moves) through a medium Pulse Single disturbance Medium Material through which a wave propagates

3 Waves Waves transfer energy from one place to another, not mass

4 Wave Types Two main types Transverse Motion of the disturbance is perpendicular to the direction of the wave propagation Longitudinal Motion of the disturbance is parallel to the direction of the wave propagation

5 Transverse Waves Motion of the disturbance is perpendicular to the direction of the wave propagation Example: Light TRANSVERSE WAVES

6 Longitudinal Waves Motion of the disturbance is parallel to the direction of the wave propagation Example: Sound LONGITUDINAL WAVES

7 Surface Waves Combination of transverse and longitudinal waves Example: Water

8 Water Waves (surface)

9 Wave Characteristics Amplitude, A (m) Displacement away from equilibrium point Wavelength, λ (m) Length of 1 wave cycle Period, T (s) Amount of time for 1 wave cycle

10 Wave Characteristics (cont) A λ (m) T (s) Crest Trough

11 Wave Characteristics (cont) Frequency, f (Hz or s -1 ) Number of cycles per second Inverse of period Speed, v (m/s) How fast wave is traveling Related to frequency (period) and wavelength

12 Equations f = frequency (Hz) T = period (s) v = speed (m/s) λ = wavelength (m)

13 Light Light is also called electromagnetic radiation Light is a combination of fluctuating electric fields and magnetic fields that are perpendicular to each other

14 Electromagnetic Spectrum

15 RRadiowave MMicrowave IInfrared VVisible UUltraviolet XX-Rays GGamma CCosmic Wavelength Decreases Frequency Increases Energy Increases

16 Light (cont) Transverse Wave Travels through vacuum Color is based on frequency Green Light = 5.6 x 10 14 Hz Speed of light in a vacuum (air also) c = 3 x 10 8 m/s

17 Sound Longitudinal Wave Needs a material (medium) to move Pitch is based on frequency Concert A = 440 Hz Speed of Sound in air is dependent on Temp v = 331 m/s at STP

18 Wave Speed Waves must follow the kinematic equation The speed of waves depends upon the material that the wave travels through

19 Wave Speed Sound can not travel in a vacuum, light can Light travels fastest in a vacuum, slower in all other materials Sound travels faster in more dense materials

21 Phase Difference Two points are considered in phase when they are at the same point in a wave cycle The amount of in or out of phase is measured in degrees

22 Phase Difference Examples What point is in phase with A? B and D are how far out of phase? Name two other points in phase with each other.

23

24 Wave Motion Waves propagate in all directions without barriers

25 Wave Fronts Line that represents waves that are all in phase, usually crests

26 Principle of Superposition When two waves meet, they combine together briefly, then go their separate ways Crest + crest = bigger amplitude Trough + trough = bigger amplitude Crest + trough = lower amplitude

27 Interference Constructive Interference When 2 waves interfere with resultant wave having larger amplitude Destructive Interference When 2 waves interfere with resultant wave having smaller amplitude

28 Simulation Examples http://www.surendranath.org/Applets/Waves/ TWave02/TW02.html http://www.surendranath.org/Applets/Waves/ TWave02/TW02.html

29 Interference Example Two point sources (green dots) What do the red dots represent? What do the blue dots represent?

30 Sound Beats Interference produced when two sounds interact Frequency of beats is equal to difference of frequencies of two sounds Concept used to tune pianos Demo

31

32 Standing Waves Occurs when two waves traveling in opposite directions in the same medium, with the same amplitude and same frequency Resultant wave appears to be standing still Demo

33 Nodes and Antinodes Nodes Points of maximum destructive interference Antinodes Points of maximum constructive interference

34 Nodes and Antinodes

36 Doppler Effect Change in frequency due to moving wave source or observer Example

37 Doppler Effect When distance between source and observer is decreasing, frequency increases Blue Shift When distance between source and observer is increasing, frequency decreases Red Shift

38 Sonic Boom When moving object exceed the speed of sound, air builds up into a shock wave

41 Video YouTube Video How does this work?

42 Resonance Natural Frequency Particular frequency that every elastic body will vibrate at if disturbed Resonance Vibration of a body at its natural frequency because of the action of a vibrating source of the same frequency

43 Real Life Microwaves produce waves that have the same frequency as the vibrational frequency of water molecules UV rays have the same frequency as certain chemicals in human skin, causing sun burns Google – Tacoma Narrows BridgeTacoma Narrows Bridge

44 Harmonics Fundamental Frequency(1 st Harmonic) Lowest frequency possible 2 nd Harmonic 2x frequency of 1 st Harmonic (Octave higher)

45 Closed Pipe Harmonics (Lab) 1 st Harmonic L = 1/4 = 4L 3 rd Harmonic L = ¾ = 4/3L 5 th Harmonic L = 1 1/4 = 4/5L

46 Open Pipe Harmonics 1 st Harmonic L = ½ =2L 2 nd Harmonic L = 3 rd Harmonic L = 1 ½ =2/3L
