Waves cause a disturbance of the medium through which they travel, which allows them to carry energy. The quantity of energy carried relates to the amplitude of the wave.
What do waves carry?
Which of the following is a type of wave that needs matter through which to travel?
In what type of wave do the particles of the medium vibrate at right angles to the direction that the energy travels?
Which of the following is an example of a longitudinal wave?
What is the amplitude of a wave?
The distance from any point on one wave to the same point on the next wave along
The number of waves passing a point in a certain time
The distance from the centre line to the top of a crest
What is the wavelength of a wave?
What is the frequency of a wave?
The number of waves passing a point each second
What is the relationship between wave amplitude and energy?
The greater the amplitude, the smaller the energy
The greater the amplitude, the larger the energy
The smaller the amplitude, the greater the energy
What is the speed of a wave?
How far the wave travels in a certain time
What is the speed of light in air?
