What is amplitude?
Displacement from rest position to crest (not trough to crest)
1 of 12
What is the wavelength?
Length from crest to crest
2 of 12
What is the frequency?
Number of complete cycles or oscillations passing a certain point per second
3 of 12
What is frequency measured in?
Hz
4 of 12
Wave speed equation?
Wave speed (m/s) = Frequency(Hz) X Wavelength(m)
5 of 12
What is 1 kilohertz(kHz) and 1 megahertz(MHz) in Hz?
1 kHz = 1000 Hz, 1 MHz = 1 000 000 Hz
6 of 12
All waves can be... (r, r, d)
Reflected, Refracted, Diffracted
7 of 12
How can we see things?
Reflection of light
8 of 12
Law of reflection?
Angle of incidence = angle of reflection
9 of 12
What does total internal reflection depend on?
The critical angle
10 of 12
What is diffraction?
Waves spreading out
11 of 12
What is refraction?
Changing the speed of a wave so it can change direction
