Wave Motion Chapter 16: Wave Motion Conceptual problems 16.C. 6 (5.00) You have two strings of different linear densities tied together and stretched end-to-end between a pair of supports. What happens to the speed of a wave that passes from the more dense string to the less dense one? The speed decreasesThe speed increasesNo change (0/1 submissions used) 16.C. 7 (7.00) Waves of identical frequency and amplitude are simultaneously launched down two identical wires of equal mass and length, although one wire is tauter than the other. Which wave will arrive at the other end first, or will they arrive at the same time? Wave on tauter string arrives first Wave on tauter string arrives first.Wave on looser string arrives first.They arrive at the same time. (0/1 submissions used) Section 0: Introduction 16.0.1 (5.00) Use the simulation in the interactive problem in Section 16.0 to answer the following questions. (a) Does changing the frequency of a wave in the simulation change its wavelength? (b) Does changing the frequency of a wave in the simulation change its amplitude? (c) Does changing the amplitude in the simulation cause the the wave to move noticeably faster or slower down the string? (a) Yes No
