Waves are disturbances that transfer energy from one place to another without transferring the particles of a medium. Some waves must travel through matter, known as the medium (mechanical waves). And when they travel through the medium they cause the particles to vibrate. Some types of mechanical waves are sound waves and ocean waves. Electromagnetic waves, on the other hand, are waves that do not need to travel through a medium. They are disturbances in both the electric and magnetic fields. These waves can travel through a vacuum (empty space) because they don't require a medium to travel through. Some examples on them are light, X-Ray and infrared rays. Both these types of waves are classified according to the direction the particles, it…

emotions that are found in the novel The Wave by Todd Strasser are fear and satisfaction. Ben Ross decided to help his students understand how the Nazis could follow Hitler so blindly. Through the experiment, him and his students learned that it was fear. Learning that fear was the cause, it was bound that it would show up sooner or later. The first example of fear was when an anonymous student wrote to Laurie Saunders a letter titled Welcome to the Wave - or Else. The student wrote: “This…

This artifact is primary based on sample rates and to see the effects of sample rates by using Sinusoidal waves. Sinusoidal waves can be represented using frequency and period. The Frequency of a Sinusoidal wave is the number of complete cycles that happen in a particular period of time or in a given sample. The Period in terms of Sinusoidal waves, is the time it takes to perform one complete cycle. The Sinusoidal wave is a series of identical cycles happening repeatedly. The sample rate is the…

Wave Forms The P wave represents atrial depolarization. When the sinus node is in control, there should be a P wave for each and every QRS complex. Typically, sinus P waves do not plot through an ectopic from atrial tissue, since the premature atrial depolarization will reset the sinus cadence called a premature atrial complex (Blesi/Jones/Lewis pg136). The P waves is when the valves between the atria and ventricles open 70% of the blood in the atria and the atrial contraction is only…

you can’t win”. In The Wave, the Nazi party social experiment proved this to be true. Gordon High School students who were a part of the wave were viewed as the “winners” in this novel, and the “losers” were those not committed to the wave. The members of the wave did not accept the other students who were not associated with the wave. Members of the wave even harassed and abused the students not devoted to the wave. When it was revealed at the wave rally that the wave was akin to the Nazis, the…

The Wave is all about types, and Robert Billings is no exception; he's the school loser, to use the novel's rather cruel terminology. Other students in the school are afraid to ruin their own image by hanging out with the “class creep”. Ben Ross thinks that part of his problem is living in the shadow of his ultra-popular brother, who used to attend Gordon High School. When the Wave finally comes along, Robert seizes the opportunity to make a change, but things get even worse. Although some might…

What is wave? In physics, a wave can be defined as a disturbance or oscillation (movement back and forth in a regular rhythm) that travels through space and matter which transfers energy from one place to another. When studying waves it is important to remember and know that waves only transfer energy, not matter. Types of waves: - Transverse wave: A transverse wave is a wave in which the particles of the medium move a perpendicularly (at a right angle) to the direction of the wave. This type…

A. WAVES Normally when energy is transferred from one place to another a disturbance is involved. Waves can travel through air, water, and solid materials. Mechanical and electromagnetic waves are the two types of waves. Medium is the material in which a wave travels. Mechanical Waves When a source of energy causes a medium to vibrate, a mechanical wave is formed. Mechanical waves require a medium to travel. There are two different types of mechanical waves: longitudinal and transverse waves.…

Introduction A wave is a repeating disturbance or movement that transfers energy through matter or space. Waves are caused by vibrations. There are two types of waves, transverse, and longitudinal waves. The moving particles in transverse waves travel at right angles to the direction of transverse. Some examples of transverse waves are light waves and radio waves. A longitudinal wave is also known as a compression wave. The moving particles move back and forth in the same direction as the wave.…

the branch of physics concerned with the study of sound. Sound is a wave made of vibrations in the air. Waves can be measured in a range of different ways: by their amplitude, wavelength, frequency, speed, and, at times, their phase. Sound information is transmitted by the amplitude and frequency of the vibrations, where the amplitude is experienced as loudness and frequency as pitch. The vibration is started by some mechanical movement and this causes a vibration on the molecules next to the…
