Waves Intro – PHET Simulation





Topics

  • Frequency
  • Amplitude
  • Wave Speed
  • Wavelength
  • Water
  • Sound
  • Light

Description

Make waves with a dripping faucet, audio speaker, or laser! Adjust frequency and amplitude, and observe the effects. Hear the sound produced by the speaker, and discover what determines the color of light.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Make waves with water, sound, and light and see how they are related.
  • Discuss wave properties using common vocabulary.
  • Explain how changing the frequency and amplitude affects the characteristics of the wave.
  • Design an experiment to measure the speed of the wave.
