Part A = periodic
Part B = λ = v/f
Part C = decreases
Part D = radians
Part E = T = 1/f
Part F = ω = 2π * f
Traveling waves propagate with a fixed speed usually denoted as v (but sometimes c). The waves are called __________ if their waveform repeats every time interval T.
The fundamental relationship among frequency, wavelength, and velocity is
v = f / λ
Solve this equation to find an expression for the wavelength lambda.
Express your answer in terms of the velocity v and the frequency f.
λ = v/f
If the velocity of the wave remains constant, then as the frequency of the wave is increased, the wavelength __________.
The difference between the frequency f and the frequency ω is that f is measured in cycles per second or hertz (abbreviated Hz) whereas the units for omega are __________ per second.
Find an expression for the period T of a wave in terms of other kinematic variables.
Express your answer in terms of any of f, v, ω, and simple constants such as pi.
T = 1/f
What is the relationship between ω and f?
ω is the angular frequency. Since a full circle has 2π radians, just multiply f by 2π:
ω = 2π*f
