# Waves Intro – PHET Simulation

• 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.
