  1. 1. Making Waves
  2. 2. Lab Check:Lab Check: Transverse Waves
  3. 3. Transverse Wave
  4. 4. Amplitude
  5. 5. Crest
  6. 6. Trough
  7. 7. Longitudinal Wave
  8. 8. The Longitudinal Wave
  9. 9. Longitudinal Wave
  10. 10. Compression
  11. 11. Rarefaction
  12. 12. The Transverse Wave
  13. 13. Exit Ticket:How do the characteristics oftransverse waves andlongitudinal waves compare
  14. 14. Answer: Both waves transmit energy.– Transverse waves can travel through emptyspace or a medium while longitudinal wavesrequire a medium to transfer.– In a Transverse Wave the energy travelsperpendicularly to the wave– In a Longitudinal Wave the energy travels parallelto the wave
  15. 15. Rewind…Essential Learnings
  16. 16. Essential LearningsTransverse Waves– Energy travels perpendicular to thewave– Do not require a medium– Amplitude is the distance from therest position to the crest or trough ofthe wave.– Light travels in Transverse Waves
  17. 17. Essential LearningsLongitudinal Waves– Energy travels parallel to the wave– The portion of this wave where it iscrowded together is called thecompression– The portion where the spacebetween compressions is greatest iscalled the rarefaction.
  18. 18. Essential LearningsLongitudinal Waves– Requires a medium– Wavelength is the distance from onecompression to the next compressionof the wave.– Sound being produced by vibrationstravels in Longitudinal Waves
  19. 19. Essential LearningsFin
