Properties of waves
Amplitude –
The maximum distance that _______________________________________________________
_______________________________________________________________________________
More energy transferred = _______________________ amplitude
Diagram:
Wavelength:
The distance between any two _________________________________________________________
next to each other in a wave OR the distance between any two ____________________________ next
to each other
More Energy = _____________________________ wavelength
Diagram:
Frequency:
The number of waves _________________________________________________________ - expressed
in hertz (Hz)
For waves: 1 Hz = ____________________________________
If 2 waves have equal amplitude - High frequency waves carry ____________________________ than
low-frequency waves.
Diagram:
Wave speed:
The speed at which __________________________________________. Speed (v) can be calculated
using wavelength (λ – greek lambda) and frequency (f)
Wave speed equation:
v=λxf
Relationship between wave properties: Wavelength and frequency are inversely related.
