Sound waves are classified as
Which of the following motions does NOT describe a wave?
the tossing of a ball from one point to another
the bobbing of a buoy in the ocean
the oscillation of a guitar string when plucked
the rippling of water in a pond
A wave’s speed is defined as
distance per two points of a wave
distance per unit time
The amplitude of a wave
determines how quickly a wave travels
is the distance between successive wave crests
is equivalent to a wave’s equilibrium position
corresponds to a wave’s energy
If the frequency of a wave decreases, the wave’s
If the period of a wave increases, the wave’s
A wave’s speed is determined by its
wavelength and orientation
wavelength and amplitude
frequency and wavelength
frequency and amplitude
Which of the following phenomena is NOT an example of a transverse wave?
the ring of a bell
a laser beam
a perpendicular oscillation of energy
a flashlight beam
What is the frequency of a wave whose oscillations are 2 seconds apart?
It is where the sound waves are produced.
It is where the sound waves travel.
Gives the compactness of the particles as they occupy space in the structure.
The ability to bounce back after being disturbed.
If the medium of the sound waves is gas, _____________ considerably affects the speed of the sound.
none of the above
When the source is moving toward a stationary observer, the sound waves will get closer that will result to _______________.
Shorter wavelengths and higher frequency
Longer wavelengths and lesser frequency
shorter wavelengths and lesser frequency
Longer wavelengths and higher frequency
