Unit1: WAVES

mechanical waves, sound waves, EM waves
lecture notes: part1
description of waves, sound waves. (chapter 16 from Cutnell)

part 3C diffraction

















what is a wave
water waves are circular
waves: amplitude and frequency
creating a wave from a source of energy (transverse)
creating longitudinal wave
transverse and longitudinal waves
S and P waves from earthquakes
demonstration: speed depends on the tension play with the applet
reflecting wave 1 pulse, 1 end
reflecting wave - depends on boundary condition more in depth here
speed of wave decreases in a different medium
