A wave travels an average distance of 1 meter in 1 second with a frequency of 1 hertz Its amplitude is that there is not enough information to say. A 60 vibration per second wave travels 30 meters in 1 second, its frequency is 60 hertz and it travels 30 meters per second.

What would happen if you reduced the amplitude of a sound wave?

Because sound waves are displacements of molecules of the medium they travel through, reducing the amplitude would mean decreasing the displacement the molecules experience as the wave passes through. Even though sound waves are longitudinal (meaning the displacement is in the direction the wave travels in) and waves in water are transversal (the displacement is perpendicular to the wave's direction), an example can be found in water waves; reducing the amplitude in water waves would reduce the size/height of the waves. In the case of audible sound waves reducing the amplitude will decrease the volume of the sound.

What is the difference between a loud and soft sound?

Sound is actually a vibration in the air which travels in the form of a wave. The larger the amplitude of the wave, the "louder" the sound. the smaller the amplitude of the wave, the "softer" the sound.

What is a fundamental mode of vibration?

The fundamental frequency is the lowest mode of vibration of a system. If you think of a taut string, the lowest mode with which it can vibrate is the one where the centre of the string travels the maximum distance up and down so the string forms a single arc. It is also possible for it to vibrate so that two arcs (one up and one down) fit into the string, and there are many more possibilities with higher frequencies. On a stringed instrument you can hear the fundamental frequency as the normal note which the string plays, and the others as overtones. Other systems exhibit the same phenomenon.

How long does it take solar energy to reach the earth if it travels at 300000 kms?

To answer this you need to know the average distance of the sun from the earth. This distance is 92,935,700 miles, or 149,565,511 Km. [1] Using the classic distance = speed x time formula, we see that time = distance / speed. 149,565,511 Km / 300,000 Kms = 498.55 seconds, or 8.31 minutes. [1]

Can you describe the similarities of wavelength amplitude frequency and speed of mechanical and electromagnetic waves?

There is absolutely no similarity between amplitude, frequency and the speed of mechanical and electromagnetic waves. All electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed. It does not matter if they have a great big amplitude, a high frequency, or whatever. An ittsie bitty gamma ray travels at the same speed as a great big radio wave. A sound wave, loud or soft travels at the same speed. The way a mechanical wave travels depends on the material.

What is the amplitude (the distance from the crest to the midline of the wave) (in nautical miles) and frequency of a wave if the wave travels a distance of 5680.50 nautical miles in 6.3 hours.?

Not enough information. If you divide the distance by the time, you'll get the speed of the wave - in nautical miles per hour. For the frequency and wavelength, the following relationship can be used:frequency x wavelength = speed (of the wave) So, if you know any two of these three numbers, you can calculate the third one. But in this case case, you only know one. The amplitude can be anything. It is unrelated to the speed of the wave.

What is the difference between wavelenghtand amplitude?

The wavelength is the distance the wave travels before repeating in meters. The amplitude of the wave is the deflection from peak to trough in units of the wave value, e.g electric field or velocity.
