The Effect Mixing Has on the Wave Patterns of a Song Anna Rezhko Grade 10 Woodbridge High School January 16, 2014 Miss Cooper Abstract The purpose of the experiment was to find the objective difference between an original song and an acoustic or a remix version of the same song. The expectation was that the difference lies in the amount of contrast between the highest and lowest amplitude. Sound waves are created when an object vibrates back and forth and they have amplitudes, wavelengths, and

Wave Interactions Wave interactions include reflection, refraction, diffraction, and interference. Wave interactions occur when a wave hits something and it either reflects, refracts, diffracts, or there is an interference. Many different types of waves can be involved in wave interactions including sound, light, surface, etc. Reflection occurs when a particular wave, or waves, bounce, or reflect back from an object through which they cannot pass. An echo is a good example of a reflection wave interaction

PHY 101 Lab Report Waves Lab Purpose The purpose of this laboratory experiment is to “investigate how the vibrating source affects selected characteristics of the sound produced” (Giancoli, 2006). Materials The following materials were used in the completion of this laboratory experiment: * Meter stick * Two paper towel rolls / cardboard tubes * Scissors * Two rubber bands * Wax paper * Transparent tape * Flashlight * Balloon Procedure Part 1:

Sound of Waves Test Answer each of the following questions thoroughly. I will be grading on thoughtfulness and how well you explain your answer. For the factual questions, you just need to get it correct. This first section does not need as much explanation, you may give a short response. Why was Shinji’s mother angry when she first received Hiroshi’s post card? She was angry because Hiroshi had sent her an expensive post card, and she said "kids these days don't know the value of money

To fully understand how to determine the velocity of sound in air, many concepts have to be understood prior to the experiment. Sound waves transmitted through a fluid are a type of longitudinal wave. These mechanical waves are formed when energy passes through a medium and moves particles in the same direction or parallel to the energy. The particles move in a series of high pressure and low pressure regions. The energy will compress some areas of the medium, creating a high pressure region

a sound wave? A sound wave is produced by a mechanical vibration, such as a tuning fork. The vibrating object causes the surrounding medium, such as air, to vibrate as well.The wave travels through the medium to a detector, like your ear, and it is heard.As with any type of wave, a sound wave is also described by it's wavelength, amplitude, period, and frequency. WAVELENGTH is the distance from one point on the wave, to the next identical point, or the length of one part of the wave. AMPLITUDE

This lab demonstrated qualities of standing waves with great help from a mechanical vibrator, a sine wave generator, and a piece of string. Through this lab we were able to understand how to calculate the speed of a wave on a string. A standing wave is defined as a wave that travels forward, then is reflected creating nodes (regions with minimal to zero energy). If the frequency of a standing wave is increased then more loops will be created, and because of that the wavelengths will be decreased

bomb attack had just flown over our base, making the terrain and landscape uneven and harder for our soldiers to be accurate when shooting against enemy wave robots and machinery. A lot of soldiers wonder why the waves of enemies occur at random times of the day, even though we do get warnings 2 days in advance from our leader King Lysander. Waves are the

standing waves. A tube with a speaker at the top of it was playing at a constant frequency. As the speaker played, the tube filled with water. The reflections in this lab caused destructive interference. When waves reflect and they are on two sides of the medium the sound cancels out and there is no noise. Where this occurs it is called a node and with the nodes the wavelength could be measured because the distance between two nodes is a half a wavelength. The lab was conducted with standing waves because

Is light a wave or a particle? This is a question that has been debated for centuries and still is unproven to be only one or the other. This report is about explaining Young’s Double Slit Experiment, which tried to prove light as a wave, and the results of his experiment. This report is also to inform and explain the modern physics world, and it will accomplish this by explaining Young’s Double Slit Experiment to help understand a small part of the modern physics world. In the modern physics world
