Unit 2 - Quiz 1
2014-15 School Year
The first quiz of the Wave Mechanics unit will be taken at the end of class
on Thursday, October 23. The quiz will address the following objectives:
student should be able to describe the nature of a wave and distinguish
between that which is vibrating and that which is moving.
student should be able to distinguish between the variety of wave
properties - wavelength, amplitude, frequency, period, and speed and be
able to relate the quantities that are mathematically related.
student should be able to use a standing wave model to analyze a wave
pattern and to determine relationships between the wave pattern,
vibrational frequency, string length, wavelength, and speed.
