Activity: 1D waves

IB Physics: Activity: 1D waves

Define the difference between longitudinal and transverse waves.Introduce polarisation.Sketch displacement time and displacement position graphs for a wave.Understand how standing waves are formed.Investigate standing waves in strings experimentally.Water waves and waves in a string are both transverse waves.The direction of displacement is perpendicular to the direction of propagation.This is when the direction of disturbance...
