Wave Properties Lab Report Name Nicole Harvey Part 1 – Transverse and Longitudinal Waves, Reflection, Interference Data: A.. Is this a transverse or longitudinal wave? Transverse What happens when the wave gets to the end of the Slinkey? Does it disappear move back up the Slinkey on the same side as it went down, or travel back up on the opposite side? travel back up the opposite side B. Is this a transverse or longitudinal wave? longitudinal What happens when the wave gets to the end of the Slinkey? Does it disappear or move back up the Slinkey? move back up slinky C. Does the string move away from you or does just the energy move away from you down the Slinkey? energy moves away from me down the slinky D. Fill in the blanks using possible answers given in the ( ). When 2 waves sent down the same side from opposite ends down the Slinkey at the same time meet, they cancel each other out (add together, cancel each other out) and stop (stop, keep going down the Slinkey in their original directions) E. Fill in the blanks using possible answers given in the ( ). When 2 waves sent down opposite sides from opposite ends of the Slinkey at the same time meet, they add together ( add together, cancel each other out) and keep going original directions (stop, keep going down the Slinkey in their original directions). Conclusions for Part I: (1) When 2 waves pass through the same material at the same time and either add together or subtract, the wave property of interference is observed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
