Science Topic Review GCSE Core Science: Physics 1 5.1-5.5 Waves FACT 5 Name: Date set: Date reviewed: To improve, your next steps are: In order to achieve each grade, you will: F-G Be able to complete a simple reflection, refraction or diffraction diagram. Know the law for both reflection and refraction. D-E Be able to work out the wavelength and amplitude of a wave. C A*-B Be able to calculate the speed of a wave. Be able to rearrange a formula. Be able to complete a diffraction wave diagram Student review: Teacher review: Grade description: Grade F-G Complete this diagram showing the path of the ray of light. Grade C continued Calculate the wavespeed, in cm/s. Speed = frequency x wavelength ...................................................................................................... You need to show the direction of the wave as well. ...................................................................................................... ..............................................................................................cm/s Grade A*-B The diagram shows water waves in a ripple tank moving towards a gap in a barrier. The water waves diffract as they pass through the gap. Complete the diagram to show the diffracted water waves. Grade D-E What is the wavelength of this wave? __________________ What is the amplitude of this wave? __________________ Attitudes to Learning Grade C Water waves can be made by vibrating a wooden bar up and down in a tray of water. ASQ Behaviour Attitude to Learning Target: The bar moves up and down at a frequency of 5 kHz. I have improved by: ASQ Your teacher…….. H/W Work ethic
