3 The diagrams below show a stretched slinky spring drawn to a scale 1 cm = 5 cm. Diagram A shows

a section of the slinky before a wave reaches it. Diagram B shows the slinky at an instant as a wave

travels through it.

scale 1 cm = 5 cm

(a) What kind of wave is travelling through the slinky?

_________________________________________________________________________________ [1]

(b) On diagram B mark two successive compressions and two successive rarefactions. [1]

(c) Use a ruler and the scale of the diagram to determine the wavelength of this wave.

_________________________________________________________________________________ [1]

(d) Find and mark a coil in diagram B that has moved furthest from its equilibrium position in diagram A,

and hence determine the amplitude of the wave.

4 The speed, c, of a transverse wave along a string or wire under tension is given by c = T

µ,

where T is the Tension in Newtons and µ is the mass per unit length in kg/m.

(b) The diagram shows a wire of length 2 metres kept in tension by hanging a weight from one end. The

mass per unit length for this wire is 5 g/m. If the weight that keeps the wire in tension is 0.5

Newtons. A vibrator is used to produce standing waves in the wire.

(i) calculate the speed of the transverse wave travelling along the wire when it is oscillating.

(ii) Does the speed of the wave depend on the frequency at which the vibrator oscillates the wire?

Explain your answer.

firmly attached to a ceiling at A. Given that the speed of a transverse

wave through a string is given by c = T

µ , will the speed of the pulse

change as it moves up the rope, and if so does the speed increase or

decrease. Explain your answer as fully as you can.
