    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

  • Sound of Waves

    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

  • Sound Waves Essay

    1607 Words  | 7 Pages

    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

  • Standing Waves Lab

    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

  • The Dangers Of The Wave Of Robots

    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

  • The Physics Of A Wave

    790 Words  | 4 Pages

    Introduction As seen in the previous laboratory experiment, standing waves are produced when a wave and its reflection are superposed. When a wave travels on a string we notice places of maximum amplitude called antinodes, and regions of no amplitude at all, that we call nodes. When the medium in which the wave travels is air instead of a string, similar observations are made. In this case, the antinodes are regions of maximum compression in the air column, while the nodes are those regions which

  • Winter Wave : The Korean Wave And The Korean Wave

    936 Words  | 4 Pages

    480J November 6, 2017 The Korean Wave, otherwise also known as Hallyu, is a phenomenon that originated from Korea and traveled all over the world. Thirty years back, no one would have known what “saranghaeyo” or what “oppa” meant. But now, people are taking Korean classes to learn the language and culture and non natives are able to understand a whole episode of Korean drama without subtitles. One would argue that the drama Winter Sonata initiated the Korean Wave. Winter Sonata is a television series

  • Is Light a Wave or a Particle?

    538 Words  | 2 Pages

    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
