Students will learn the concept of destructive and constructive interference in the context of beat frequencies.
A demonstration of beat frequency is performed, and the concept behind it is explained.
Calculate the beat frequency of two combined waves, analyze sine wave graphs.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Beat Frequencies.
This study guide gives an overview of mechanical waves and the characteristics of transverse waves and longitudinal waves. It also looks at wave interaction: interference (constructive and destructive), beat frequency, standing wave, resonance, and the Doppler effect.
These flashcards help you study important terms and vocabulary from Beat Frequencies.
