Basic waves and calculations

HideShow resource information

Various definitions to be learnt: 

  • A = amplitude (m)- Maximum displacement from the equlibrium position 
  • Wavelength - Minimum distance between 2 points on a wave oscillating in phase. 
  • Frequency - Number of wavees per second 
  • T (period) - Time to produce one wave 

There is an equation to help us work out 'T' , if we are given a wave and
