6.1 Understanding Waves
1. Motion of WavesA wave front is a line or plane on which the vibration of every points on it are in phaseand are at the………….(same/different) position from the source of the water.2.When we use a fingertip to touch the surface of water repeatedly, ……....(circular/plane)wavefronts are produced.3. Types of wavesThere are 2 types of waves :-(a) ……………….(b) ……………….4. Transverse wave(i). Transverse wave is a wave in which the vibration of particles in the medium isat ……………….. (parallel/perpendicular) to the direction of propagation of the wave. A = … ……………….(crest / compression)B = …………………..(rarefaction /trough)(ii). Example of transverse wave:i. ……………………………………..ii……………………………………...iii……………………………………..5. Longitudinal waves(i) A longitudinal is a wave in which the vibration of particles in the medium is……………………….(parallel / proportional) to the direction of propagationof wave. (ii) Example of longitudinal wave:…………………………..P = …………………..(crest / compression)Q = …………………..(rarefaction / trough)

Wave speed
If the wavelength of the wave is
λ
, the waves move forward a distance of
f
x
λ
per second. Therefore, the speed of waves,

Frequency, f  The number of complete oscillations per second.The S.I. unit is Hertz (Hz)
Question 2
A child on a swing makes 20 complete swings in30 seconds. What is the frequency of theoscillation?
Question 3
In an experiment , Lim observes that a simple

pendulum completes 30 ascillations in 48.0seconds. What isthe period of oscillation?The frequency of oscillation?
