2 ANALYSING REFLECTION OF WAVES

At the end of the lesson, you should be able to:


1) Describe reflection of waves in

terms of the angle of incidence, angle of reflection, wavelength, frequency, speed and direction of propagation. 2) Draw a diagram to show reflection of waves.

1.2 Analysing Reflection of Waves


1) Obey law of reflection. Where

angle of reflection, r = angle of incidence, i 2) After reflection, the propagation of reflected wave CHANGE IN DIRECTION, but there is NO CHANGE of WAVELENGTH and SPEED OF WAVE. Since the frequency of the wave remain the same.

Application of Reflection of Waves in Daily Life


1) The rear view mirror and side mirror in a car.
2) Periscope.

3) Optical fibre

1.3 Analysing Refraction of Waves


At the end of the lesson, you should be able to: 1) describe refraction of waves in terms of the angle of incidence, angle of refraction, wavelength, frequency, speed and direction of propagation. 2) draw a diagram to show refraction of waves.

1.3 Analysing Refraction of Waves


1) Refraction of wave occurs when the speed of a wave changes as it moves from one medium to another. 2) After refraction, the wave has the SAME FREQUENCY, but a DIFFERENT SPEED, WAVELENGTH and

DIRECTION.

3) When water wave transmitted from deep water to shallow

water, the refracted wave decreases in wavelength and speed, it is refracted towards normal.
