Hamza Ahmad Unit 1 Physics Lesson # 1 1). The amplitude measures the height of the crest. It is measured from the midline to the crest. In the diagram, the amplitude is 1 cm which is 0.01 m. The wavelength measures the horizontal distance between two cycles. It is measured from the end of one cycle to the end of another cycle. In the diagram, the wavelength is 3.5 cm which is 0.035 m. 1b). Δd = 4.8 m λ = Δd/N N = 3 waves λ = 4.8/3 λ = 1.6 m The wave length is 1.6 meters. 1c). Δt = 6.0 s v = 4.8/6 Δd = 4.8 m v = 0.80 m/s v = Δd/Δt λ = 1.6 m v = f xλ f = v/λ f = 0.80/1.6 f = 0.5 Hz 1d). f = 2 Hz λ = 1.6 m

v = 0.80 m/s Therefore, the speed of the wave is 0.80 m/s and the frequency are 0.5 Hz. 2). Longitudinal and transverse waves are mechanical waves, both longitudinal and transverse waves carry energy through particles of matter. Longitudinal waves transfer energy parallel to the direction of the wave motion and the transverse waves transfer energy perpendicular to the direction of wave motion. Amplitude and wavelength are bot measures of distance. Amplitude measures the height of the

### What students are saying

• 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.
