CHAPTER 1

WAVES

WAVE MOTION
First situation

A boy kicks a ball and the ball accidentally hits and breaks the glass window producing noise. In this case, energy is transferred from the source (the boy) to the receiver (the glass window) by the matter (the ball). The noise we hear from the breaking glass is due to the energy transferred to our ears by sound

wave.

WAVE MOTION
Second situation

When we throw a stone into a pond, a ripple spreads out in an expanding circle from the source of disturbance. In this case, energy is transferred from the source (the stone) to the receiver (the cork) without involving the transfer of matter (the water). The movement of cork we see because of

water wave.

Wave motion
There are two ways of transferring energy:

Motion of objects

Motion by waves

DIRECTION of PROPAGATION of WAVES

Lets we refer page 6 (Practical Book) Experiment 1.3 Why not we try to do that activity?

DAMPING (Pelembapan)
The amplitude of oscillation of the simple pendulum will gradually decrease and become zero when the oscillation stops. The decrease in the amplitude of an oscillating system is called damping.

Why Damping happens:a) External Damping

System loss of energy to overcome frictional forces or air resistance. b) Internal Damping System loss of energy due to the extension and compression of molecules in the system.

Resonance
To enable an oscillating system to go on continuously, an external force must be applied to the system 1. External force Supplies energy to the system 2. Natural frequency Without the action of an external force 3. Resonance Resonance occur when frequency by external force equivalent to natural frequency of system and produce maximum amplitude. At this time, energy from outside will be transfer to oscillating system.

Phenomena of waves

Refraction of waves
- Any types of wave can be refracted - Refracted can change of direction - Refraction occur when the speed of a wave changes, as it moves from one medium to another

Refraction of waves
1. Refraction of plane water waves 2. Refraction of light 3. Refraction of sound waves

Refraction of plane water waves

Water waves undergo refraction when they are slow down. Refraction can change of speed and wavelength of the waves. Water waves travel faster (with higher velocity) on the surface of deep water than they do on shallow water. If water waves are passing from deep water into shallow water, they will slow down. Speed and wavelength will decrease. The change in speed of the wave causes refraction.

Phenomena of waves

Diffraction of waves
- Diffraction involves a change in the direction of waves as they pass through an opening or around an obstacle . - Water waves have ability to travel around corners, around obstacles and through opening. -The spreading of waves around corners, around obstacles and

diffraction.

The diffraction of water waves

Do you still have problem to understand about diffraction of waves? Read this paragraph.
Diffraction involves a change in direction of waves as they pass through an opening or around a barrier in their path. Water waves have the ability to travel around corners, around obstacles and through openings. This ability is most obvious for water waves with longer wavelengths. Diffraction can be demonstrated by placing small barriers and obstacles in a ripple tank and observing the path of the water waves as they encounter the obstacles. The waves are seen to pass around the barrier into the regions behind it; subsequently the water behind the barrier is disturbed. The amount of diffraction (the sharpness of the bending) increases with increasing wavelength and decreases with decreasing wavelength. In fact, when the wavelength of the waves are smaller than the obstacle, no noticeable diffraction occurs.

Read this paragraph and try to get differences with reflection, refraction and diffraction
Reflection, refraction and diffraction are all boundary behaviors of waves associated with the bending of the path of the wave. The bending of the path is an observable behavior when the medium is a two- or threedimensional medium. Reflection occurs when there is a bouncing off of a barrier. Reflection of waves off straight barriers follows the law of reflection. Reflection of waves off parabolic barriers results in the convergence of the waves at a focal point. Refraction is the change in direction of waves which occurs when waves travel from one medium to another; refraction is always accompanied by a wavelength and speed change. Diffraction is the bending of waves around obstacles and openings; the amount of diffraction increases with increasing wavelength.

Lets us consider two waves A and B, A moves towards the right, and B move towards the left. What will be happen when this two waves meet each other? Wave interference is the phenomena which occurs when two wave meet while traveling propagating along the same medium.

1.6 SOUND WAVES

How is sound waves produced?

Sound waves are produced when vibrating object causes the air molecules around it to vibrate.

Sound wave are longitudinal waves

A series of compressions and rarefactions will produce sound. The particles in the air vibrate backward and forward in the direction parallel to the direction of propagation of the sound wave.
