Properties of Waves
Part 1: Read the handout "Properties of Waves". As you read make a list of the properties of waves. Write a sentence that describes each property.
Part 2: calculating waves' speed, frequency, or wavelength.
Using the formula provided, solve the following problems:
Speed = wavelength X frequency
Frequency = speed ÷ wavelength
Wavelength = speed ÷ frequency
1. A wave has a wavelength of 5mm and a frequency of 2 Hz. At what speed does the wave travel?
2. The speed of a wave on a guitar string is 100 m/s and the frequency is 1,000 Hz. What is the wavelength of the wave?
Part 3: Waves on a String . Explore the following web activity. Write a summary of your findings, in particular address how changing amplitude affects frequency and wavelength and how changing frequency affects amplitude and wavelength..
