  • Microwaves Use High Powered Radio Waves And The Water Molecules

    1443 Words  | 6 Pages

    Microwaves use high powered radio waves generated by a vacuum tube (also known as a magnetron) to heat up the drink and foodstuff placed within them. The high powered radio waves are channelled into the food compartment through a waveguide, and they heat up the food by interacting with the water molecules in the foodstuff. The greatest interaction between the high powered radio waves and the water molecules occur at the greatest amplitude of the waves, at points on the wave where the amplitude is equal

  • Physics of Tsunamis Essay examples

    discuss the physics and warning systems of tsunamis, a destructive wave force that researchers have been studying for many years. Tsunamis are different than tides or surface waves because undersea earthquakes, instead of winds or the gravitational pull of the moon or sun, generate them. They can reach speeds of up to 700 kilometers per hour but can be undetected until they reach shallow water, then unexpectedly arise as deadly waves. Tsunamis evolve from three physical processes, which are generation

  • Average Waves In Unprotected Waters Analysis

    happens because of sound waves. Sound Waves are disturbances that go from one place to another in a medium. An example of this could be a Slinky. when it is all stretched out the slinky would be at equilibrium. Then a particle in the slinky moves in any direction and makes a disturbance. A pulse allows you to see the disturbance that is happening from both ends of the slinky . when a pulse is repeated continuously through the slinky then it is a wave. A medium is where the wave is carried and held

    Well, this paper will explain how this works. The paper will be talking about sound, sound waves, standing waves, musical note names and frequencies, resonance, and closed-end air columns. Closed-end air columns will be a main focus in the paper, studying the physics behind it. Glass bottles are an example of a closed-end air column. Therefore, the more water inside the bottle, the lower the note, and less water would be a higher note. Closed-end air can be many things; ranging from brass instruments

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
