Waves are one way in which energy may be transferred between stores. Both mechanical and electromagnetic waves will transfer energy but not matter.
What do waves transfer?
Energy but not matter
Energy and matter
Matter but not energy
What is the name of the distance from peak to peak of a wave?
How is wave velocity, or speed, calculated?
wave speed = frequency ÷ wavelength
wave speed = frequency × wavelength
wave speed = wavelength ÷ frequency
How do oscillations move in a transverse wave?
At right angles to the direction of wave travel
Parallel to the direction of wave travel
How do oscillations move in a longitudinal wave?
What is the name for an area of low pressure in a longitudinal wave?
What is the wave velocity of a 1,000 Hz wave with a wavelength of 0.04 m?
What is the accepted value for the speed of sound in air?
What is the general name for waves that require a medium to vibrate?
What is the speed of a sound wave that takes 0.5 s to travel 750 m?
