Students will learn how to use the wave equation to solve problems.
A couple example problems involving wave equations are solved.
Identifying and counting crests in a wave diagram
Identifying and counting troughs in a wave diagram
Measuring the wavelength of a wave from a wave diagram
Recognizing that the velocity of a wave is constant in a particular medium
Solving problems involving the velocity of a wave using the equation v = Î»f
Recognizing the inverse relationship between a wave's frequency and wavelength
Use of the linear equation to calculate wavelength, frequency, and speed of any wave.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Wave Equation.
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 Wave Equation.
