WAVE PROPERTIES NOTES Use Chapter 25 in the book to complete the following notes questions. Use this information to complete the separate practice problems. The practice problems will be collected as a grade; this sheet will be your notes for the unit. Definition of period and frequency: 1. What is period <25.1>? a. Period is measured in time (sec, min, hrs, days, yrs, etc.). b. Period is found by the total time divided by the number of oscillations. ns oscillatio # time T = Example: A particular wave takes 5 seconds to complete 4 back-and-forth motions. What is the period of the wave? s 25 . 1 ns oscillatio 4 sec 5 T = = 2. What is frequency <25.2>? a. What is frequency measured in <25.2>? b. Frequency is found by the number of oscillations divided by the time required for those oscillations to travel. time ns oscillatio # f = Example: If a particular wave allows one oscillation to travel through a given point every 5 seconds, what is the frequency of the wave? Hz
