  1. Characteristic Properties of Waves CRCT Prep

  2. The figure below shows a spring with a wave traveling through it. Which type of wave is illustrated? A. sound B. transverse C. longitudinal D. electromagnetic

  3. What property of electromagnetic waves makes it possible to use these waves to transmit information between a space shuttle and NASA mission control centers on the ground? A. Electromagnetic waves are transverse waves. B. Electromagnetic waves have very low velocity. C. Electromagnetic waves are all visible to human eyes. D. Electromagnetic waves can travel through a vacuum.

  4. A. amplitude. B. frequency. C. wavelength. D. wave speed. The diagram below shows a wave trace. Distance Z is a measure of

  5. Some campers are sitting around a campfire outside their tent. Which product of the fire is in the form of electromagnetic waves? A. light B. smoke C. sound D. water vapor

  6. Which of the above waves has the longestwavelength? A. Wave #1 B. Wave #2 C. Wave #3 D. Wave #4

  7. The area that shows the amplitude of the wave is A. 1. B. 2. C. 3. D. 4.

  8. Behavior of Waves vs. Media CRCT Preparation

  9. A piece of blue paper appears blue because the paper • reflects all colors of light except blue • refracts all colors of light except blue • absorbs all colors of light except blue • is transparent to all colors of light except blue

  10. Josie sees lightning off in the distance. A few seconds later she hears thunder. What can Josie conclude? A. Sound waves do not travel long distances. B. Light waves travel faster than sound waves. C. Sound waves are weaker than light waves. D. Light waves last longer than sound waves.

  11. Mariam's mother had an ultrasound to see the baby growing inside of her. Which statement explains how ultrasound works? A. A special cream is heated and placed on her mother's stomach area, which produces an image on a computer. B. A fluorescent light is used to transmit light waves into her mother's body, which produce an image on a computer. C. Sound waves are sent into her mother's body, which reflect off of the baby and produce an image on a computer. D. A type of medicine is injected into her mother, which causes an image of the baby to be produced on a computer.

  12. Through which material would sound travel the fastest? A. liquid water B. solid metal C. humid air D. outer space

  13. Aperson will see a flash of lightning before they hear the thunder that goes with it because A. the eye is quicker than the ear. B. the thunder occurs much later than the lightning. C. sound travels faster through the atmosphere than light. D. light travels faster through the atmosphere than sound.

  14. Behavior of Light Waves CRCT Prep

  15. By what process does a lens focus light? A. reflection B. refraction C. congregation D. dispersion

  16. The figure below shows how the word "ambulance" is painted on the front of some vehicles so that it reads correctly in the rearview mirror that is attached to the windshield of a car driving in front of the ambulance. The word is painted this way because the mirror A. turns the word upside down. B. reverses the left and the right sides of objects. C. rotates the objects by 90 degrees. D. makes the objects appear farther away.

  17. The picture below shows a duck swimming in a lake. A student sees a mirror image of a duck in the water of the lake. What causes this mirror image? A. black light B. refracted light C. reflected light D. absorbed light

  18. What happens to the path of a light ray as it passes from air into water at an angle? A. Its path widens. B. Its path bends. C. Its path becomes shorter. D. Its path continues in a straight line.

  19. Which of the following would reflect rather than refract light? A. magnifying glass B. mirror C. prism D. lens

  20. Sound CRCT Preparation

  21. What is the reason for this? A. Sound waves move too fast. B. Sound waves reflect off objects. C. Sound waves spread out too much. D. Sound waves do not fit easily into the tubes. Lester can hear the sound of the kitchen timer in Diagram A. But he cannot hear the sound of the kitchen timer in Diagram B.

  22. Through which material would sound travel the fastest? A. liquid water B. solid metal C. humid air D. outer space
