[2 pts] The picture shows a wave at a certain instant in time. The amplitude of the oscillation is plotted versus the distance from the source of the wave. From the graph, determine the wavelength of the wave. n m l k j A. 2.0 meters n m l k j B. 4.0 meters n m l k j C. 20.0 meters n m l k j D. .25 meters n m l k j E. 3.5 meters Answer: B 2. [2 pts] The picture shows the time dependence of the amplitude of the oscillation of a wave as measured at a fixed position. From the graph, determine the frequency of the wave. REMEMBER: the frequency is the number of cycles (full oscillations) per second. The units are Herz, where 1 Herz = 1 cycle/second. n m l k j A. 3.0 Herz n m l k j B. 1.5 Herz n m l k j C. 0.1 Herz n m l k j D. 2.0 Herz n m l k j E. 0.5 Herz Answer: E 3. [3 pts] The energy of a photon of light is inversely proportional to its wavelength. By what factor will the wavelength change if the energy is changed [3 pts] The energy of a photon of light is inversely proportional to its wavelength....
