This is an experiment relating to wave motion appropriate for middle school physical science or high school physics slinky springs can be easily manipulated to produce both transverse or longitudinal waves, allowing users to compare and contrast. What comes to mind when you think of a wave chances are your mental image takes the form of a transverse wave but, longitudinal waves are just as. Class practical introduce the concept of a transverse wave by drawing attention to a wave pulse as a displacement at right angles to the direction of travel along a rope transverse waves along a rope this experiment was safety-checked in february 2006 contact us. Talk:transverse wave wikiproject physics (rated start-class, mid-importance) this (electromagnetic and sound) transverse waves travel slower than longitudinal waves in the same medium --berland 08:26 a better experiment for transverse waves is to waggle a rope or string. Subject: physics/waves anti-sound spring send waves down a spring to watch them travel and interact bird in a cage stare at one color—but see another attribution: exploratorium teacher institute teacher institute science snacks about science snacks snacks and ngss special.
Conclusion from this experiment we can conclude that in transverse waves crests from science physics at sam barlow high school. College of science and computer science physical sciences department physics 2 experiment #3 transverse and longitudinal waves 1 abstract a wave can be described as a disturbance that travels through a medium from one location to another location in this experiment we used a slinky spring to demonstrate transverse and longitudinal waves. Demonstration use this experiment when introducing transverse and longitudinal waves later it might also be used when introducing standing waves or factors that affect wave speed through a medium apparatus and materials for the demonstration, or for each pair of students slinky spring rubber tubing.
Intro to waves lab name: date: group members: part 4: periodic transverse waves so far, you've just been sending single wave pulses down the spring by vibrating your hand steadily back and forth, you can produce a stream of wave pulses, called a periodic wave. A transverse wave vibrates perpendicular (moves at right angles) to the wave travel (water waves are a good example) when a number of waves are sent through a medium and then reflected this experiment works best on a hard floor (not carpeting. Name date period lab report title we can make both compressional and transverse wave types background information the compressional and the longer transverse wave conclusion from this experiment it can be seen that compressional waves made by.
Experiment 8: standing waves on a string objective: to verify the relationship among wave velocity, wavelength, and frequency of a transverse wave apparatus: magnetic oscillato r vibrating at a frequency of 60 hz, string, mass. Sound in air is propagated only by means of longitudinal waves waves in which the particle's motion consists of oscillations back and forth in the direction of propagation in a solid such as a metal rod, sound can be transmitted either by longitudinal or transverse waves in this experiment.
With just a slinky and your hands, model transverse wave resonances as well as longitudinal wave resonances learn about nodes and antinodes of motion and compression.
Transverse and longitudinal waves experiment 2 the back and forth of waves you need: a slinky a friend or some way to anchor one end of the slinky down a smooth floor tape (again, colored tape would be better) 1. This video demonstrates constructive and destructive transverse waves when two waves travel in the same direction, the two can combine and create a larger w. Even observe a string vibrate in slow motion wiggle the end of the string and make waves, or adjust the frequency and amplitude of an oscillator skip to main content wave on a string experiment to determine relationship between wavelength, frequency and speed: mark wilson: ms: lab. Lab #2: transverse waves introduction: the speed, v, of a wave depends upon the properties of the medium through which it propagates this is often a misunderstood feature of wave phenomena in this experiment we investigate this relationship.
