When solving a problem, you would only use 2 of the ratios at a time. Wave speed f v Wave speed = frequency wavelength True for any wave. Speed of sound in air T v C s m s m sound / 6 . 0 331 Speed of sound = 331 + 0.6 air temperature Temperature must be in ºC. Echolocation t v D 2 1 Distance to object = ½ wave speed elapsed time The ½ is there because the waves travel from the source to the object and then bounce off of the object & return to the source. Wavelength n L Wavelength = total length / number of waves True for any wave. Frequency t n f Frequency = number of waves / elapsed time True for any wave. Period n t T Period = elapsed time / number of waves True for any wave. Optic formula i o d d f 1 1 1 f is focal length d o is object distance d i is image distance Object distance is always positive. This formula applies to both lenses & mirrors. Theoretical magnification o i d d M Theoretical magnification = negative image distance / object distance Object distance & height are always positive. For the HW, assume the theoretical magnification & the actual magnification equal each other. In lab, they will most likely not equal each other due to measurement errors for the distances & heights. Measured magnification o i h h M Measured magnification = image height / object height

Read the following paragraph and then use the graph to answer the following questions. A mysterious substance is cooled for 90 minutes. During that time the substance went from gas to liquid to solid. 23. Why is the temperature of the substance not changing at t = 60 min? 24. At what temperature did freezing occur?
