b) compression and air
c) medium and mechanical
d)

A student measures the frequency of a wave as 2 waves/second, and the wavelength as 5 cm/wave. Use the velocity equation (v = f X λ) to calculate the speed of the wave.
a) 10 cm/sec
b) 10 waves/sec
c) 12 cm/sec
d) 12 waves/sec

Reflection in a wave is
a) the bouncing back of waves off an object
b) is the amount of kinetic energy in the wave
c) the crest of the wave
d) the distance between two adjacent crests

A WAVE is
a) a back-and-forth pattern of motion that transfers energy
b) the ability to do work
c) the energy of motion
d) a rate of something that repeats over and over

A compression wave
a) a wave in which the wave's medium is compressed in the same direction as the movement of the wave
b) a wave in which the movement of the wave's medium is perpendicular to the movement of the wave traveling through the medium
c) is made by throwing a ball in the air
d) doesn't exist

Crest is the
a) high point of a wave
b) low point of a wave
c) height of a wave
d) point where the wave meets the resting line

Kinetic Energy is also known as the

All waves have these two things in common
a) they transfer energy and they move in a back-and-forth pattern of motion
b) they are all compression waves and longitudinal waves
c) they all have nodes and crests
d) they all transfer heat energy and light energy

Amplitude is the
a) distance between the resting line and the crest
