The type of energy transferred by a wave in a medium is energy
The larger the index of refraction the light will bend as it enters
A convex lens is also called a
What is the reciprocal of frequency
The reciprocal of frequency is the time period of the wave
Which type of wave travels faster through solids than it does through gases
The pitch of a sound wave is its
When sound waves interfere to create standing waves the points on the medium that move up and down with the largest amplitudes are called nodes
A in a transverse wave corresponds to a compression in a longitudinal wave
The pitch of a sound is determined by its wavelength and speed together or its alone
The pitch of a sound can be determined by its frequencyalone.
Newton discovered that the colors formed by a prism can be recombined to create light
The maximum displacement of a particle within a wave above or below its blank position is called amplitude
In what way do pigments act differently from light
They reflect their color and absorb all the others.
What is the distance from the center of a lens to its principal focus called
This is called the focal length of the lens.
A ray of light traveling parallel to the principal axis of a concave mirror will be reflected out through the mirror's
The wave equation says that a wave's speed is equal to its times its frequency
When a wave moves from a dense medium to a less dense medium most of the wave energy is
The pitch of a sound is determined by its and speed together or its frequency alone
The pitch of a sound can be determined by its frequency
The amount of diffraction that occurs when a sound wave encounters a barrier depends on the waves
A major difference between radio waves visible light and gamma rays is the energy of the photons
The primary colors of visible light are red orange yellow green blue and violet
How much work must be done on a 5kg snowborad to increase its speed from 2ms to 4ms
Which color have the shortest wavelength
The color with the shortest wavelength is purple, sometimes called violet.
At the point of a converging lens the object cannot be seen.
All Electromagnetic radiation
