|Title||Finding Wave Properties|
|Simulations||Gelombang Pada Tali|
|Description||This is an activity we use in 9th grade physics towards the beginning of the wave unit. The students' learning goals are: 1) Calculate and measure different wave characteristics (frequency, period, amplitude, wavelength). 2) Describe the relationships among each of these wave characteristics We introduce these concepts first in class and then do the simulation the next day.|
