Our purpose of the lab is to study the different types of waves, along with, their properties. The procedures we did was to send a single wave to your partner. Then, move one end forward and back to create a longitudinal wave. Although, you move the slinky up and down to create a transverse wave. The result that we got was quite surprising. The waves created different energy outputs. We learned that the different motions we make with a slinky can create different waves.
Tides and waves are made by surface currents and subsurface currents and help the ocean currents move. (Currents) The temperature of the ocean currents is a big part because it helps make the circulation pattern as the currents move around. (Pidwirny) What makes the ocean currents spin in a circular formation and move to different parts of the ocean is called a gyre. “Gyres are what
Sound is usually something that people usually take as something simple. However, sound can be a very complicated topic. Sound is a wave of vibration (called a longitudinal wave) caused by a release of energy.
It does not indicate the longitudinal speed of the wave or the speed of one particle (vibrational speed). We cannot have the transverse speed of the particles since they do not move transversally.
Setting is an extremely important element in stories and understanding it adds more depth in the overall comprehension an author’s intentions. In the pastoral romance novel The Sound of Waves by Yukio Mishima, the author uses the beautiful scenery as an important element to the story. The main protagonist, Shinji, has many connections to nature and the ocean throughout the story. Yukio Mishima uses the setting to provide a better understanding of his characters and to express the power of nature.
Wave by Sonali Deraniyagala is a life taking memoir where Sonali watched her whole family be swept away before her eyes being the only one to tell her tale. Throughout the book Sonali deals with depression and anxiety after finding out what was the cause of her family's death, A tsunami. She later explains her feelings and difficulties without her family being by her side. Relying on friends she slowly gets better by facing the one place she wanted to forget ,Sri Lanka. This was just the beginning for Sonali.
The four main types of earthquake waves are as follows: primary waves, secondary waves, love waves and Rayleigh waves. Primary waves travel away from where the earthquake occur by compressing and expanding as they propagate in liquids, solids , and gasses. They travel throughout the whole earth longitudinally and are faster than secondary waves . Secondary waves only propagate in solids and do not affect the outer liquid core of the planet causing them to be classified as transverse waves. The next two waves are love waves and Rayleigh waves. Love waves move back and forth in the direction they are traveling while Rayleigh waves also move on the surface but are closer to how waves in the ocean move. Their movement is circular in motion as they move through the Earth but the circular motion is retrograde meaning the waves circle backward as they move forward. These two types of waves are classified as surface waves and they occur when primary waves and secondary waves reach the earth's
A surface wave is simply a wave that travels alongside the surface of a medium, or to make it easier just think of ocean waves. The large wall of moving water is what gives the surfer an amazing ride. The surfer gets pushed forward as though they’re as light as a feather and all he needs to do is keep his balance on the surfboard. The incredible power of the wave will do the rest. Ocean waves such as this one are prime examples of surface waves.
In the book The Wave by Walter Mosley the crank caller that haunts Errol Porter nightly sounds a lot like his deceased father who died a long time ago when he was small. Enough so that one day Errol goes to the cemetery one night in response to the to the one called the "Caller". He finds a man that does indeed resemble his father, except this man is much younger. All of the stories the the caller has told Errol Porter has match to the ones of his Father, but how can Errol’s father rise from the dead and turn back the clock?
Whenever someone comes into the Emergency Department of a hospital with chest pain, an electrocardiogram (ECG) is done. An ECG is a recording of the voltage pulses in the heart. These voltage pulses are waves of electrical current that cause the heart to beat. Before continuing our discussion, it is important to note that an electrical current is the flow of electrons whereas voltage is simply the potential those electrons have to do work if or when they are delivered.
Earthquakes are sudden trembling or shaking vibrations. Earthquakes are large spinning spiral winds, that comes together by rocks underground breaks along the fault. There are two types of earthquakes, there is the body waves and the surface waves. Body waves travel at 7/8 km. The body wave is the fastest of the two waves. The surface waves act as a gravity waves that are between two fluids with different density. Unlike hurricanes,
