Tomorrow is your summative assessment on the electromagnetic spectrum and the behavior of light. In class today we played jeopardy to review. You can play the jeopardy game on your own using the following link
In class we discussed compressional waves in particular as to how they relate to sound. We also discussed the theoretical (and kind of gross) idea of the Brown Note.
Today we spent some time learning how to calculate the speed of a wave, which is the product of the frequency of the wave multiplied by its wavelength. You can check out a full tutorial to find any of these quantities here.
Today we made some waves of our own outside with different types of rope. On Monday we will analyze our data and continue our study of waves.
