Learn about how waves are measured according to amplitude, wavelength and frequency.
What is the name for the distance from peak to peak of a wave?
What is the general name for waves that require a medium to vibrate?
What is the unit for time period?
What is the time period of a 40 Hz wave?
What is the frequency of a wave with a time period of 0.08 s?
How is wave speed calculated?
Wave speed = frequency ÷ wavelength
Wave speed = frequency × wavelength
Wave speed = wavelength ÷ frequency
What is the wave speed of a 1000 Hz wave with a wavelength of 0.04 m?
A boat at sea bobs up and down as waves pass. The vertical distance between a crest and a trough is 62 cm and 20 waves pass the boat in 30 seconds. What is the amplitude of the waves?
