Wave Notes
S8P4. a. Ask questions to develop explanations about the similarities and differences between
electromagnetic and mechanical waves.
Waves—
•
Any ______________________ that transmits _______________
Electromagnetic Waves—
•
Waves that do not need a ________________—a substance through which the wave can ________
•
Can travel through a _______________
Ex. light, __________________, TV &amp;Radio waves, _______________
Mechanical Waves—
•
Waves that need a _______________—a __________________ through which the wave can travel
(___________, ____________, ______________)
Ex. _____________ waves, _____________ waves,
Waves travel as either Transverse or Longitudinal Waves
Transverse Waves—
•
Waves move __________________ to the direction the wave is traveling
•
highest point—______________
•
lowest point—______________
Longitudinal waves—
•
Waves move _________________ to the direction the wave is traveling
•
crowded areas—____________________
•
spaced out areas—____________________
S8P4. f. Develop and use a model (e.g., simulations, graphs, illustrations) to predict and describe the
relationships between wave properties (e.g., frequency, amplitude, and wavelength) and energy.
Parts of the wave—
Crest—the _____________ point of a transverse wave
Trough—the _____________ point of a transverse wave
Wavelength—the distance from any point on one ___________ to an __________________ point on the
next wave
Amplitude—the maximum _________________ that the particles of a __________________ vibrate from
their rest position (the _______________ of the wave)
Name_______________________________________
Remember:
AL
Amplitude/loudness
PF
Pitch/frequency
1) The amplitude of a wave is related to _______________.
2) The greater the amplitude the _______________ the sound and the more _________________ it has.
This wave will sound ____________________
This wave will sound ___________________
Frequency—the ________________ of waves produced in a given amount of
____________
The frequency of a wave determines _______________ and _______________.
A wave with a ___________ frequency has a high pitch and ______________ energy.
A wave with a ___________ frequency has a low pitch and ______________ energy.
This wave would have a ___________ pitch.
This wave would have a ___________ pitch.
