Title Properties of Waves Virtual Lab
Description In this virtual lab, students explore properties of waves and the effects of changing amplitude and frequency on wavelength. Students identify direct and inverse relationships, wave types (transverse/longitudinal) and parts of waves (crest, trough, compression, rarefaction). Changes in frequency and amplitude are also applied to water, light, and sound. Link provided for editable Google Doc.
