1) Waves transmit energy
2) Waves spread out
3) Waves transform energy
4) Waves are related to vibrations
Two Types of Waves: Longitudinal and Transverse
Wave Length - 0.02 m
Wave Frequency - 8 Hz
Wave Speed - 0.16 m/sec
Wave length - 0.03 m
Wave frequency - 6 Hz
Wave speed - 0.18 m/sec
Dual Pin Interference
The interference between two sets of concentric waves that share the same frequency.
Double Slit Interference
The interference from two sets of waves originating from a single source, that traveled through a barrier with two slits
When constructive interference occurs; interfering waves travel in the same direction. When destructive interference occurs; interfering waves travel in opposite directions.
Originates from two sources
Starts as a spherical wave
Waves interfere with only each other
Originates from a single source
Starts as a plane wave
Waves interfere with stationary objects
A change in the direction a wave is traveling after bouncing off a barrier between two kinds of media.
Law of Reflection-The angle of reflection is equal to the angle of incidence
Change in the intensity or direction of a wave after passing by an obstruction who's size is about the size of the wavelength
The smaller the distance of the diffraction, the greater the deflection.
