8.1 Understanding Radiowave
Energy can continuously move from one place to another.
Wave : a disturbance that is produced repeatedly and transfers energy(example light and sound energy)
Can be described using a number of standard variables including frequency,wavelength,amplitudeand period 
75 8
2.Time needed for each particle to complete 1. Maximum displacement of particles from their rest pointone full wave movement 3. The spreading out of waves4. The superposition of two or more waves from 5. Distance between twosuccessive point, which are in thecoherent sources same phase8. The change of direction of wave when it enters 6. The number of completewaves passing a given pointa new medium in the medium for eachsecond7. The change of directionof waves due to hitting reflectivesurface
Electromagnetic Spectrum
Wavelength (λ)Amplitude ThroughPeak
Complete the following:
Mechanical waves exists in a medium. These waves need medium totravel. Examples of mechanical waves are _______ waves (travels throughwater) and ________ waves (travels through air)
Non-mechanical waves do not need medium to travel. They can travelthrough __________. Examples of non-mechanical waves are _______ waveand _________ wave. These waves belong to a group of waves known aselectromagnetic waves.
Electromagnetic wave is a combination of electric and magnetic wave thatcan travel through vacuum.
Radio Waves in Communication
Radio waves are everywhere. They can be use to send messages andbroadcast music and television programmes.
 This is possible because radio waves can travel long distance and throughvacuum
Each radio or television stations has a specific frequency that we cantune.
8.2 Radio Communication
Electrical Components in Radio:
resist the flow of current
can store energy
electric chargers stored in a pair of conductor
referred as condenser
only allow a.c. pass through
restricts the direction of movement of charge carriers
