Waves and Energy Review

Sound waves, water waves, and the waves made by a rope are all examples of 1. Transverse waves 2. Longitudinal waves 3. Seismic waves 4. Mechanical waves

A mechanical wave is caused by 1. 2. 3. 4. Forces creating a disturbance in a medium The motion of light through space The transfer of energy through a vacuum The transfer of an object through a medium

Which of the following is an example of a medium? 1. 2. 3. 4. Light A wave Water Energy

When a wave moves across a pond, it transfers 1. 2. 3. 4. Water molecules up and down and energy across the pond Water molecules across the pond only Energy up and down and water molecules across the pond Energy up and down only

A transverse wave transfers energy 1. In the same direction as the disturbance 2. In the opposite direction of the disturbance 3. At right angles to the disturbance 4. Only at the location of the disturbance

Which is an example of a longitudinal wave? 1. A wave made by a moving rope 2. A wave made by dipping your hand in a pond 3. An ocean wave 4. A sound wave

Roads can be bent or broken far away from an earthquake’s center. This shows that earthquake waves 1. Move rocks away from the center 2. Are longitudinal waves 3. Transfer energy over a distance 4. Raise and lower the ground near the center

What do ocean waves, earthquake waves, sound waves, and light waves all have in common? 1. They all require a medium 2. They all transfer energy 3. They all move objects great distances 4. They are all mechanical waves

A scientist measures the height of waves compared with the surface of a calm ocean. He is finding the waves’ 1. 2. 3. 4. Amplitude Frequency Speed Wavelength

Wavelength measures 1. From crest to crest 2. From crest to trough 3. From trough to trough

The number of wavelengths passing a point in a given time is a wave’s 1. 2. 3. 4. Crest Amplitude Frequency Trough

Sound waves are caused by 1. 2. 3. 4. Amplitude Pitch A medium Vibrations

Sound waves transfer energy by 1. Pushing and pulling air particles 2. Forcing the air out of a space 3. Moving air particles up and down 4. Creating a barrier

Sound travels the fastest through which type of medium? 1. 2. 3. 4. Gas Liquid Solid Sound travels the same speed through all of the above
