Wave equation, practice Tuesday, February 3, 2015

2
Unit 7: Waves Tuesday, 2/3 Respond to the following How does the medium of a wave affect the wave’s velocity. Support your answer. Upcoming Events Thursday, 2/5 – Waves Quiz Friday, 2/6 – 4SW extra credit due by 4:00 PM Friday, 2/13 – Waves Quiz Friday, 2/13 – End of 4SW Wednesday, 2/18 – Waves Test (5SW)

3
Frequency and Period Working with your elbow partner do the following: 1. Create a T chart for the characteristics of frequency and period.

4
Frequency example Michael Phelps swims 20 laps in 3 minutes (180 seconds). What is the frequency of Michael Phelps swimming?

5
Period example Bobby and Bertha are playing a game of ping pong. The ball goes back and forth 40 times. The period of the game is ____________ seconds

6
Practice Complete first section of your notes.

7
Where we’ve been - speed Refer to section two on your notes

8
Wave equation

9
What affects the speed of a wave? Calculate the wave speed in the ‘wave speed practice section of your handout.

10
Summary Are there any trends? Support your answer. What conclusion can you make regarding the relationship between velocity and the medium? Support your answer. What is the relationship between velocity and wavelength? What is the relationship between velocity and frequency? What is the relationship between wavelength and frequency?

11
Wave Equation Relationships Wavelength and frequency are inversely proportional. Velocity remains unchanged Velocity (speed) of the wave is only affected by the medium in which it is traveling in.

12
Practice

13
Cool down Write everything you know about wave properties and wave speed (3 minutes). Write one item that is muddy about wave properties and or wave speed.
