Target Audience:

11th and 12th grade Physics Class

Objectives:

Students Will Be Able To:

• Describe parts of a wave

• Determine the difference between longitudinal and transverse waves

• Perform calculations to determine wavelength, velocity, and frequency

• Assess student understanding of waves

• Give students opportunities to observe and describe wave phenomena

• Allow students to verbalize knowledge of waves in small and large groups

Physical Setting Indicator 4.3: Students can explain variations in

wavelength and frequency in terms of the source of the vibrations

that produce them, e.g., molecules, electrons, and nuclear particles.

4.3a An oscillating system produces waves. The nature of the system determines

the type of wave produced.

4.3b Waves carry energy and information without transferring mass. This energy

may be carried by pulses or periodic waves.

4.3c The model of a wave incorporates the characteristics of amplitude,

wavelength,* frequency*, period*, wave speed*, and phase.

4.3dMechanical waves require a material medium through which to travel.

4.3e Waves are categorized by the direction in which particles in a medium

vibrate about an equilibrium position relative to the direction of propagation

of the wave, such as transverse and longitudinal waves.

Misconception(s) Addressed:

• All waves travel the same way.

• Light is one or the other--a particle or a wave--only.

• Light can be a particle at one point in time and a wave at another point in time.

• Particles can't have wave properties.

• Waves can't have particle properties.

• The position of a particle always can be exactly known.

Lesson Plan

As students walk in, have them fill out the rubric from the Pendulum Unit Project and submit

their projects.

Have students work in small groups to develop a KWL chart regarding waves on chart paper.

These should be hung around the classroom if possible.

Materials:

• Wave Unit sheet

• Computer and projector or SMARTboard

• Practice Problem Copies

Procedure:

Last class, the concept of waves was introduced considering that a transverse wave has the same

shape as the graph of the periodic motion of a simple harmonic oscillator over time.

“We discussed two types of waves – Transverse and Longitudinal – and they’re anatomy. Today

we’re going to look at them more closely.”

A Band: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fk9vGmpqlis

E Band: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTcHqbIQbX8

Transverse: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g49mahYeNgc

Longitudinal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XA5XW0sGN_I

Draw diagrams of the two waves near each other and have students label the wavelength,

period, direction of velocity, displacement of the particle within the medium, the crest, trough,

amplitude, etc. and introduce compression and rarefaction within the longitudinal wave

(comparable to the crest and trough in the transverse wave).

“How might we develop this equation to describe the velocity of a wave?” Since velocity is

measured in meters-per-second, we want the units to end up that way as well.

Becky McCoy

This means: v =λ f

Practice problem together:

Dong-Won and Phil are on a dock at a lake. They are counting waves that are passing by. a) In

45 seconds, 15 waves pass by them. What is the frequency of these waves? When is the period?

b) If each wave is 0.8 meters long, what is the velocity of the waves?

a) f = waves/second = 45/15 seconds = 3 /sec T = seconds/wave = 15/45 = 1/3 sec

b) v = λ f = (.8)(3) = 2.4 m/s

Have each lab group work together to solve a velocity equation problem from the problems listed

below. Each team should have a few minutes to solve their problem and then present their

process and answer on the board for the rest of the class.

Students should complete the practice problem sheet used in the activity summary.

On a scrap piece of paper, students should draw a transverse and a longitudinal wave with a

wavelength of 1 m and period of 4 seconds. Then students should solve for the velocity of the

wave.

Students should also add anything to any column of their KWL chart if needed.

Extension Activity:

Give students the opportunity to work on the homework.

Assessment:

Formative:

• Student KWL Charts

• Student conversations and contributions to discussion

Summative:

• Homework responses

1. A bat can detect small objects such as an insect whose size is

approximately equal to one wavelength of the sound the bat makes. If

bats emit a chirp at a frequency of 60.0Hz and if the speed of sound in air is 340 m/s,

what is the smallest insect a bat can detect?

2. If the frequency of oscillation of the wave emitted by an FM radio station is 88.0 MHz,

determine the waves (a) period of vibration and (b) wavelength. (Radio waves travel at

the speed of light, 3.00 x 108 m/s).

3. A piano emits sound waves with frequencies that range from a low of about 28 Hz to a

high of about 4200 Hz. Find the range of wavelengths spanned by this instrument. The

speed of sound in air is approximately 343 m/s.

4. A transverse wave is traveling along a rope. It is observed that the oscillator that

generates the wave completes 40.0 vibrations in 30.0 seconds. Also, a given maximum

travels 425 cm along the rope in 10.0 seconds. What is the wavelength?

5. Ocean waves are traveling to the east at 4.0 m/s with a distance of 20 m between

crests. With what frequency do the waves hit the front of a boat when the boat is at

anchor?

6. A girl on the beach watching water waves sees 4 waves pass by in 2 seconds, each with

a wavelength of 0.5 m. Find (a) the period and frequency of the wave and (b) the speed of

the wave.

7. If a wave has frequency 1014 Hz and speed v = 100 m/s, what is its wavelength? How

will the wavelength change if the frequency is 1015 Hz?

8. A phone cord is 4.00 m long. Plucking one end of the taut cord produces a transverse

wave. The pulse makes four trips down and back along the cord in 0.800 seconds. What

is the wave’s velocity?

9. A circus performer stretches a tightrope between two towers. He strikes one end of the

rope and sends a wave along it toward the other tower. He notes that it takes the wave

0.800 seconds to reach the opposite tower, 20.0 m away. What is the velocity of the

wave?

10. A wave pulse travels the length of a slinky in 0.1 seconds. If the slinky is 3.0 meters

long, find the speed of the wave.
