How does sound usually travel?
a) An object vibrates and those vibrations travel through the air in one direction as transverse waves.
b) An object vibrates and those vibrations carry air in one direction as longtudinal waves.
c) An object vibrates and those vibrations carry air in all directions as transverse waves.
d) An object vibrates and those vibrations travel through the air in all directions as longitudinal waves.

Which statement is correct when comparing p-waves, sound waves, and light waves
a) Sound waves and P-waves are longitudinal waves, while light waves are transverse waves
b) Light waves and P-waves are transverse waves, while sound waves are longitudinal waves.
c) Sound waves, p-waves, and light waves are all longitudinal waves.
d) Light waves, p-waves, and sound waves are all transverse waves.

How are electromagnetic waves different from other waves?
a) They have very short wavelengths
b) They transmit energy instead of matter
c) They can travel through a vacuum and through matter.
d) They can change direction by reflection when they strike an object.

Which statement correctly describes how a sound wave travels through air?
a) The wave carries molecules of air away from the source of the sound
b) The wave carries energy that causes molecules to move back and forth.
c) The wave carries a molecule in one direction until it collides with another molecule
d) The wave moves through the air and gains energy from the moving molecules it touches.

Josephine adds thicker string to her guitar. What does this do?
a) It prevents the guitar from using air particles to transfer the sound.
b) It changes the number of strings on the guitar.
c) It changes the vibrations made by the guitar.
d) It prevents the guitar from making sounds.

Which best explains the relationship between the speed of sound and the medium through which it passes?
a) Sound travels faster in solids because of the increased distance between solid particles.
b) Sounds travels faster in air because of the decreased distance between air particles.
c) Sound travels slower in air because of the increased distance between air particles.
d) Sound travels faster in solids because of the decreased distance between solid particles.

Which best explains the relationship between the electromagnetic spectrum and light?
a) Visible light is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that can be seen with the eye.
b) Ultraviolet light is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that can be seen with the eye.
c) Visible light and infrared light are the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that can be seen.
d) Ultraviolet light and infrared light are the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that can be seen with the eye.

What is the relationship between eyesight and light?
a) Light shines on all objects, allowing people to see them
b) Light shines through all objects allowing people to see them
c) Light enters the eye before striking an object, allowing people to see the object.
d) Light reflects off an object and then enters the eye, allowing people to see the object

How are earthquakes, sound, and light waves alike?
