Tittel Activity: Wave on a String
Beskrivelse This activity guides students through observations which will teach them what the terms wavelength, frequency, amplitude, and the speed of a wave mean. Students will explore the proportion between wavelength and frequency and will end the activity by writing an equation relating those quantities to the speed of a wave. Suitable for basic physics or anywhere an introduction to the basics of describing waves would be helpful, such as in astronomy or chemistry when studying the electromagnetic spectrum.
