 What is the main purpose of including a control in the design of an experiment a) to increase the chances of the experiment supporting the hypothesis b) to ensure the results obtained are due to a difference in only one variable c) to decrease the chances of the experiment supporting the hypothesis d) to test the effect of more than one variable. What is the difference between the dependent variable and the independent variable in an experiment? a) The dependent variable is changed to test the hypothesis, the independent variable may change due to the dependent variable b) The independent variable is changed to test the hypothesis, the dependent variable may change due to the independent variable c) The independent variable receives the experimental treatment while the dependent variable is the experimental control d) The dependent variable stays the same at all times in an experiment, the independent variable changes to test the hypothesis P-waves are the result of: a) loud concerts in arenas packed full of people b) light rays emitted from the sun c) natural disasters that shake the Earth d) tinkling in a toilet Which of the following statements most accurately describe the points of a transverse wave? a) The crest is the highest point of a transverse wave, while the trough is the lowest point b) The trough is the highest point of a transverse wave, while the crest is the lowest point. c) The crest and trough of a transverse waves are the points that meet in the middle point between the highest and lowest points d) There is no way to plot points on a transverse wave because transverse waves travel in a straight line How are light waves different from sound waves and P-waves? a) light waves have crests and troughs while sound waves and P-waves have compressions and rarefactions b) light waves have compressions and rarefactions while sound waves and P-waves have crests and troughs c) light waves travel at slower speeds than sound waves and P-waves d) light waves are always clearly visible while sound waves and P-waves can not be seen What term is given to the distance between a certain point on one transverse wave to the same point on the next transverse wave? a) crest b) trough c) amplitude d) wavelength What are the three basic properties of a sound wave? a) transverse, longitudinal, and compressional b) amplitude, frequency, and pitch c) crests, troughs, and compressions d) translucent, opaque, and transparent Through which state of matter does sound travel the fastest? a) Sound travels through all states of matter at the same speed. b) through liquids because of the slow movement of liquid particles c) Through gases because the particles of gases travel faster than those of solids d) Through solids because the particles of solids are packed closer together making it easy for sound to bridge across Besides ocean waves, what are the three main types of waves? a) light waves, electromagnetic waves, and heat waves b) P-waves, S-waves, and seismic waves c) sound waves, light waves, and P-waves d) Seismic waves, P-waves, and sound waves What are the two main classifications of wave movement? a) longitudinal and transverse b) Mechanical and motionless c) primary and secondary d) seismic and electromagnetic How do sound waves compare to P-waves and light waves? a) sound waves and P-waves are longitudinal while light waves are transverse b) sound waves and light waves are longitudinal while P-waves are transverse c) sound waves and P-waves are transverse while light waves are longitudinal d) light waves and P-waves are longitudinal while sound waves are transverse Which is an accurate description of waves? a) All waves are disturbances that move in straight line carrying energy as they move b) Waves are disturbances that spread away from a source and carry energy as they spread. c) Waves are disturbances that spread away form a source but do not carry energy as they spread d) All waves are disturbances that travel in up and down motions carrying energy as they move.
