S: Waves, Sound, and Light

FC: Waves, Sound, and Light | by Gabriela Mendoza

1: You may not know it but you come in contact with waves, sound, and light daily... They appear in the least expected places... Waves, sound, and light are honestly everywhere even if you are not able to see it... | Waves, Sound, and Light

2: WAVES!!! | Waves have several parts to them. The following parts are what you will see on any wave diagram: crest, trough, wavelength, amplitude, and rest. | Waves move energy NOT matter. The Doppler Effect is the apparent changes in frequency do to the motion.

3: Transverse waves are | Longitudinal waves are

4: + sound is a type of energy that is caused by vibrations and travels in longitudinal waves + sound is energy not matter +sound gets louder as you get closer to it | Waves

5: Absorption: Have you ever gotten up on a summer day in Las Vegas and notice how when you wear a black shirt it is a lot hotter than when you wear a white shirt. That is due to the fact that the black s the absence of color, so it absorbs all of the color resulting in creating heat. White reflects all of the colors, that is one of the reasons why wearing a white shirt on a summer day keeps you cooler.

6: Light!!! | electromagnetic radiation with wavelength of ~400 -- ~700 | Properties of light color brightness wavelength frequency reflection refraction defraction

7: Reflection--the change in direction of a wavelength at an interface between 2 different mediums so that the wave-front returns into the medium from which it originated Refraction--the change in direction of a wave due to a change of its medium.
