- 3. General Waves Properties <ul><li>Pupils should be able to </li></ul><ul><li>explain wave motion and give some examples of waves. </li></ul><ul><li>compare transverse and longitudinal waves, and give examples of each. </li></ul><ul><li>explain certain terms we use to describe a waves. </li></ul><ul><li>describe wave front and wave energy. </li></ul><ul><li>define speed, frequency, wavelength, period and amplitude. </li></ul><ul><li>recall and apply the relationship velocity = frequency wavelength and solve related problems. </li></ul>Lesson objectives
- 4. Lesson Trigger W aves are disturbances that travel away from its source of origin, the centre of disturbance. It is one way by which energy can be transmitted from one place to another. Waves, Waves, Waves Sound waves carry sound energy from the source (for e.g., loudspeaker) to the receiver (ear). Example : Go to Exp9b.mpg What are waves? What can waves do? hyperlink
- 5. Sound waves carry sound energy from the loudspeaker to our ear. In doing so, what are being disturbed? Pause and Think The air molecules between the loudspeaker and the receiver are being disturbed. Go to Exp9b.mpg air molecules are pushed back and forth between the loudspeaker and the ear.
- 6. Waves can take many forms, but there are 2 fundamental types of waves: Let’s study the wave motions to distinguish these two types of waves. Wave classification 1 Transverse waves 2 Longitudinal waves Go to E-SimPhy_302.exe both waves differ in the way the particles in the medium behave. hyperlink
- 7. Such wave motion produces transverse waves. Are the air particles being moved away from the disturbance centre ? No, only wave energy is transferred, the particles do not move away from the disturbance centre Transverse Wave motion Where is the disturbance centre? When a wave is generated, its propagation is seen as a travel of the disturbances from the disturbance centre. How do the particles in the medium respond? The particles vibrate up and down, perpendicular to the direction of wave travel. Go to E-SimPhy_302.exe wave travels from left to right.
- 8. Are the air particles in the medium transferred away from the disturbance centre? As in transverse waves, the particles do not move away from the disturbance centre, only the wave is transferred. How do the particles in the medium respond? The particles vibrate to and fro, parallel to the direction of wave travel. Such wave motion produces longitudinal wave. As the longitudinal waves travel towards the right, the particles in the medium is disturbed. Longitudinal Wave motion Wave travels from left to right.
- 9. Waves transfer energy without transferring matter When waves are generated by an energy source, they are propagated from its centre of disturbance, carrying energy away from it. Waves travels away from energy source. However, while the energy is propagated outwards, the particles in the medium only vibrate about their equilibrium position. Hence, waves transfer energy from one point to another without transferring matter.

- 13. In previous lesson, you were introduced to the idea on waves. Take a minute or so to reflect on it, what have you learnt? Take turn to share with your partner 2 learning points. <ul><li>If you are not sure what to share, you may wish to look at the guiding questions below: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What is a wave? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What does it do? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What are some examples of waves? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How do you distinguish one type of wave from the other? </li></ul></ul>Past Lesson Review Lesson Trigger

- 16. 5 Frequency f – the number of complete oscillations made by an oscillating particle in one second. – Frequency unit : hertz (Hz). 1 Hz = 1 oscillation per sec 6 Period T – The time taken for the oscillating particle to make one complete oscillation. – Period is measured in second (s). As the wave is propagated, each particle in the medium oscillates back and forth about its equilibrium position. time/s 0 1.0 2.0 3.0 4.0 5.0 6.0 displacement/cm 5.0 5.0 0 Terms used to describe waves
- 17. If a particle can make many complete oscillations within 1 s, (i) what can you say about its frequency and period? (ii) how are period and frequency related? Finding Relationship T is inversely proportional to f . its frequency f is high. its period T will be short. time/s displacement/cm 0 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.6 What are the values of the period and frequency of this wave? f = 1 ÷ T = 1 ÷ 0.2 = 5 Hz T = 1 f T = 0.2 s
- 18. When a ripple tank is used to study wave motion, we can see crests and troughs from the side of a ripple tank. Terms used to describe waves These wavefronts join all crests together. These wavefronts join all troughs together. crest trough Wavefronts refer to imaginary lines drawn to join all points in space that are in the same states of disturbance caused by a wave propagating through a medium.
- 19. A slinky is moved from side to side. The motion of the slinky is depicted as 'snapshots' after every ¼ of a period. <ul><li>Observations </li></ul><ul><li>From the first to the last snapshot, the hand has made one complete back-and-forth motion. A period has elapsed. </li></ul><ul><li>2 The disturbance has moved a distance equal to 1 . </li></ul>Waves speed formula t = 0 T t = ¼ T t = ½ T t = ¾ T t = 1 T
- 20. Hence, in 1 period , the distance moved by the wave is 1 wavelength . What is the speed of the wave? v = f Waves speed formula t = 0 T t = ¼ T t = ½ T t = ¾ T t = 1 T Since: speed = distance time Wave speed = wavelength period v = T 1/ f =
