    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

    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

    The waves form and break in front of me, the sound of them crashing lingers in my ears . Sitting here at the beach, I feel as if the world was still and I was the only one who existed. My toes dig into the warm, golden sand and the pleasure sweeps over me. The slight breeze is twisting my hair into knots but I don’t care. Without a breeze, the beach wouldn’t be the beach. All I hear is the roaring waves crashing in front of me and the smell of salt and sand in the air. My feet hit the icy water and

    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

    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

    Believer Bottle Analysis

    I needed to amplify the sound waves of the song "I am a Believer" using a two liter bottle. In order to achieve my goal of playing this song clear with, no fuzziness, and no echo I had to look at my materials. I chose water because the sound waves will resonate off and not absorb into the water, and then the sound waves will exit through holes that I cut into the bottle. The materials we used to make this sound amplify is a two liter bottle, an iPod, and water from the sink. One lesson in particular

    One time I learned something about myself was when I was in California with my family. When I was about 15 years old, I was boogie boarding with my sister. While I was doing this a big wave came in and it pushed me under and I got separated from my family and my sister. I didn’t realize that I got separated from them until I decided to get out. Being separated from your family can be a stressful event but after that I learned many things about myself and how I should react in a situation like that

    splashing in the water riding the waves, riding our boogie boards. Oh yes today was going to be fun! As I put on my swim suit I smelt the lingering smell of the oceans salty water from the previous time we had gone to the beach. It reminded me of how much fun I had, had and made me even more exited. The whole time we were in the car driving to the beach I couldn’t help but remember how much I loved the ocean, I loved the salty water, the enormous waves, I loved riding the waves with my board or
