1. Sounds are made by vibrating objects.

A certain object vibrates but a person nearby
cannot hear any sound.
Which statement might explain why nothing is heard?
A. The amplitude of the sound waves is too large.
. The fre!uency of the vibration is too high.
". The sound waves are transverse.
#. The speed of the sound waves is too high.
$. %lane water waves travel from a shallow region into a deeper region. They travel more
!uic&ly in the deeper water.
Which diagram shows the wave pattern in the deeper water?
'. (usic is produced by the loudspea&er of a radio.
Which property of the sound wave increases when the music is made louder?
A . amplitude . fre!uency ". speed #. wavelength
). Two sets of water waves overlap as shown in the diagram.

*rom which two points are the sets of waves coming?
A. % and S . T and + ". , and T #. - and ,
.. The diagrams show water waves that move more slowly after passing into shallow water at
the bro&en line.
Which diagram shows what happens to the waves?
/. A small boat in a harbour is protected from waves on the sea by harbour walls.

3. The diagrams represent the waves produced by four sources of sound. The scales are the
same for all the diagrams.

Astronaut 1 uses a hammer to mend a satellite in space. Astronaut 2 is nearby. There is no atmosphere
in space.
Compared with the sound heard if they were working on Earth, what does astronaut 2 hear?
no sound at all
a quieter sound
a sound of the same loudness
a louder sound
1$.A 177 metre race is started by :ring a gun. The gun ma&es a bang and a pu0 of smo&e
comes out of the gun as shown.
When does the :nishing judge see the smo&e and hear the bang?
1'.The sounds produced by two musical instruments are directed towards a microphone connected to an
oscilloscope (cro). The waveforms produced on the screen are shown.
4 of 7 班級(Class):________ 學號(No):__________
The waveforms show that the sounds produced have a different property.
What is the property?
A. frequency B. speed C. timbre (quality) D. wavelength
1. A boy stri&es a rigid metal fence with a stic& to create a sound along the fence. A girl
listens with her ear against the fence. ;ne second after the fence is struc&6 the girl hears a
sound through the air.
8ow long will it ta&e for the sound to reach the girl through the fence?
A. 7 second . less than 1 second ". 1 second #. more than 1 second
1!. Which of the following is an e"ample of a transverse and a longitudinal wave?
1#. The diagram shows a water wave in a ripple tan$.

5 of 7 班級(Class):________ 學號(No):__________
The wave crosses a boundary PQ where the distance between crests changes from '.( cm to 1.! cm.
What is the velocity of the wave at point S?
A. '.( cm&s B. #.( cm&s C. 1% cm&s D. % cm&s
1). The diagram shows a wave moving into shallower water.
The wavelength of the waves is reduced because
A. both the fre!uency and the speed decrease.
. both the fre!uency and the speed increase.
". only the fre!uency increases.
#. only the speed decreases.
