Name ___________________________________________ Date ________________ Period _________ P HYSICS P ART I – S URFING THE W AVES Wave Theory Waves transfer ________ through a medium. The __________ doesn’t move – the energy does. Longitudinal Wave Wave Types Molecules move _________________________ as the wave. Transverse Wave Molecules move ________________ to the direction of the wave.

Actual Wave How we can think of it Wavelength – Amplitude = Pitch velocity = wavelength x frequency v = λ ƒ Velocity is constant As frequency increases, _____________________________. As wavelength increases, ____________________________.

Interference Standing Wave In a closed tube, the wave _________________________. Waves of a ________ frequency than the fundamental – add richness to tones. Different instruments accentuate different ____________. Overtones

Loudness Measured in __________ – indicate the amplitude of the wave.
