Increasing the amplitude of a sound wave produces a sound with
greater loudness
The amplitude of a sound wave is to its loudness and the amplitude of a light wave is to its
brightness
The energy of a sound wave is most closely related to its
amplitude
What type of wave is sound traveling in water?
longitudinal
"Which phenomenon can occur with light
but not with sound?"
" If the amplitude of a wave is increased
the frequency of the wave will"
Which type of wave requires a material medium through which to travel?
mechanical wave
A laser beam does not disperse as it passes through a prism because the laser beam is
monochromatic
A periodic wave transfers
"energy
A single vibratory disturbance moving through a medium is called
a pulse
"As a pulse travels along a rope
the pulse loses energy and its amplitude"
"As a wave travels between two points in a medium
the wave transfers"
The energy of a water wave is most closely related to its
amplitude
The time required for a wave to complete one full cycle is called the wave's
period
What is the period of a wave if 20 crests pass an observer in 4 seconds?
0.2 s
"As a sound wave travels through air
there is a net transfer of "
The spreading of a wave into the region behind an obstruction is called
diffraction
Which phenomenon can not be exhibited by longitudinal waves?
polarization
Which waves can be polarized?
light waves from an incandescent bulb
