Test 3 Study Guide Review of Chapters 13, 14, 15, and 16 1 . Source of waves Any vibrating object. For example, a vibrating string creates a sound that propagates in space. A vibration is a wiggle. When the wiggle moves through space and time it is a wave . The source of all electromagnetic waves is vibrating charges. 2. Basics about waves Period - Frequency Relationship Period = 1/ Frequency The SI unit of frequency is the hertz (Hz) – one period of vibration per second. Wave Speed wave speed = wave length/ period or wave speed = frequency × wavelength 3. Types of waves 0. Transverse: Right-angled, or sideways, motion. The direction of wave and the direction of vibration are perpendicular. Example: Light 1. Longitudinal: Direction of wave propagation and the direction of vibrations are the same. Example: sound o Standing waves is the result of interference of two sets of waves of equal amplitude and wavelength that pass through each other in opposite direction.

### 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.
