Two areas of Physics y Classical Mechanics- Newtons’ laws works for big things y Wave/Quantum Mechanics- applies to electrical and magnetic phenomena
Properties of Waves y Wavelength- ( λ ) the distance between the crests or troughs of waves y Frequency- ( ν ) the number of times a crest passes a certain point in a second y Velocity- (v) the speed of the peak in space y Amplitude- the height from the mid-point to the crest y Energy- of a wave, definition later

The Nature of Waves y As the wavelength decreases the frequency increases
The Relationship Between λ and ν y If ν crests go by in one second, then the distance traveled in one second (speed) is velocity, which is equal to the frequency ( ν ) times the wavelength ( λ ). y For light velocity = c = 3.00 x 10 8 m/s

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
