4. Types of Waves08/08/2014 Aims • To define the properties of waves • To identify the types of waves Starter: True or False Sound travels faster than light Sound travels faster in solid objects than in liquids or air Echoes are caused by sound waves bouncing of walls Sound waves are caused by the vibration of molecules Sound travels faster at the top of Mt. Everest Light waves bounce off walls

5. A Wave • Waves transfer energy from one place to another • The disturbance moves along the wave not the particles

6. A wave in the sea: • disturbance is molecules of water going up and down • medium = water

7. A Mexican Wave • The Disturbance is the people going up and down. • The medium is the crowd.

8. Frequency = 1 Hertz Count the number of complete vibrations in ten seconds and then work out the frequency of this wave Frequency = 1.4 Hertz Frequency = 0.5 Hertz Ten second timer

9. Note that the waves are carrying energy from one place to another but the water particles are not transferred. next previous

10. Frequency • Number of waves per second • Either passing one point or generated • Symbol: f • Units: Hz (s-1)

11. Period • This is the duration of a wave • How long it takes for one wave to occur • Symbol: T • Units: s

12. We often need to analyse waveforms produced by scientific instruments. For example:- A Cathode Ray Oscilloscope (CRO) is used to monitor heartbeats. Steady Steve 1 second Helen Heart-attack 0.5seconds David Deadman Heart monitor time

26. Transverse Waves

27. Transverse Wave

28. Transverse Wave • The disturbance is perpendicular to the direction of movement • Example Light

29. Longitudinal Waves

30. Longitudinal Waves • The disturbance is parallel to the direction of movement • Aka: pressure, compression waves • Example sound • Sketch on board

31. Wave Behaviourrecap Aim • To define the properties of waves • To identify the types of waves

32. Wave Speed08/08/2014 Aim: To calculate the speed of waves To Revise Reflection Starter: • Draw a transverse wave in rough and label the wavelength and amplitude • The frequency of a wave is 5 Hz what is it’s Period? (check back in your book if you need to)

33. Wave speed • How fast the wave is travelling • Symbol v • Units m/s

34. ENERGY speed VIBRATIONS The speed is how fast the disturbance travels (how fast the energy is transferred)

35. speed ENERGY speed Notice that both waves have the same speed but different wavelengths and frequencies. The wave equation can explain this mathematically.

36. Calculating the Speed of Wave Speed = Distance Time An explosion happens 1000m away and takes 3 seconds to reach you what is the speed of sound? Speed = Distance Time Speed = 1000 3 = 333 m/s

37. Wave equation Wave speed, wavelength and frequency are related by the wave equation

38. The Wave Equation The wave equation relates the speed of the wave to its frequency and wavelength: Wave speed (v) = frequency (f) x wavelength () in m/s in Hz in m V Worksheet  f

39. Practice Questions: • Write out the variables (ie frequency = …) and the equations used • A water wave travels through a pond with a frequency of 5Hz and they are 10 m apart. How fast are they travelling? • Ricky hears a thunderclap that makes his ear drum vibrate at 165 Hz. The wavelength of the sound is 2 m how fast is the sound wave travelling? • Hannah sings an A, she knows the wavelength of the sound wave is 1.5m. How many times does her vocal chords vibrate per second? (hint: you need the answer to question 2) • Hannah plays another note on her guitar, the string vibrates with a frequency of 300 Hz what is the duration (the period) of each vibration of the string? • Jon has been running his heart is beating 180 times a minute. What is the frequency and period of his heart beats. • Jack throws a stone into the centre of a pond. The pond has a radius of 4m. He notices that it takes 2 seconds for the wave to reach the edge. He thinks the wavelength of the ripple is about 1m. What is the frequency of his ripple? What is the period of the ripple? • Purple light has a wavelength of around 6x10-7m. If its frequency is 5x1014 Hz what is the speed of light? • Red light travels at the same speed. Work out its frequency if its wavelength is about 4x10-7m.
