Abstract This project requires us to design and build a circuit that generates specified functions on the oscilloscope, as given on the project description. Also, we were required to design a means of selecting different frequencies and different amplitudes. This was especially difficult because the selection had to be made directly from the breadboard. For the final part of the lab, we were to draw the graphs we obtained to show ho...

    Savage Seas The Wave Machine The wave machine is a simulator that will allow you to create an ocean wave and determine its height. Most ocean waves are formed when the wind blows across the water's surface. The wave height is determined by three factors: wind speed, fetch, and duration. Wind Speed In 1805, Sir Francis Beaufort, observing the effects of wind speed upon the sea, devised the Beaufort Wind Scale. Though wind speed is not the only factor in determining wave size, the Beaufort scale r...

    SKA! Imagine this: spring break 1962, Jamaica. You are strolling down the streets of Kingston, enjoying the cool sea breeze and the delightful Caribbean climate. The streets are filled with many sounds. Cars' horns honking, children playing, and people shuffling by. There is one sound, however, that rises above all the hustle and bustle. Horns, guitars, organs, drums, emanating from smoke-filled clubs and bar rooms, fill you ears with a lush sound. This is the sound of ska. Ska is an old Jamaic...

    Physics Waves Lab SL Introduction: This lab will investigate the properties of mechanical waves such as a longitudinal wave, focusing on the question: Does a change in the frequency of a wave result in a significant and convincing change in the speed of the wave? Hypothesis: Changing the frequency of the wave will not result in a change in speed because the wavelength will change proportionally as in theory. Student Designed Investigation Procedure/ Planning Procedure: 1. Three students would ge...

    Surfing Surfing is a water sport that originated in what is now Hawaii. People in Hawaii were surfing before explorer Christopher Columbus sailed to the New World in 1942. Today, surfing is popular in many countries, including Australia, Brazil, France, Indonesia, Japan, Portugal, Peru, South Africa, and the United States. Ancient Hawaiians surfed on wooden boards that were up to 18 ft. Long. With the development of lighter boards, however, surfing became a popular sport. By the 1930 s the soli...

    Surfing has been a sport enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. It originated in Polynesian culture as a religious ceremony mainly practiced by the royalty. Having been introduced from the Hawaiian Islands roughly 60 years ago, it has become a common practice in virtually every coastal beach break throughout the USA and numerous places around the globe. When one goes surfing there are three basic stages that are repeated in a surf session: getting out to the line up, waitin...

    A BOOK REVIEW of The Wave by Morton RhueThis story, based on a true incident that occurred in a high school in California, demonstrates how easily a group can lose its freedom without even realising it. It all began when their history teacher, Mr. Ben Ross, let them watch a movie on how the Nazis in World War 2 tortured the people who opposed them. To give them a clearer picture, he decided to them in the situation itself. He then introduced an organisation, The Wave, and its motto, "Strength th...
  • Propagation Of Radio Waves Or Otherwise
    2,484 words
    Propagation as defined by Webster Dictionary as "the phenomenon of radio frequency energy traveling through the earth's atmosphere, as well as through the empty space above the atmosphere." Once radio-frequency energy has been emitted from an antenna it will travel away from the antenna, where it is generated from, at the speed of light. Once it is sent the wave exists and propagates independently of the system that produces it. This means that changes, which occur at the transmitter (antenna), ...
  • Light Wave Particle Properties

    Light is what we see. It can be thought of either as a particle, (the photon), or as a wave. The photon we can easily think of as a small dot travelling through space at the speed of light. Each photon has a particular colour or energy. But how do we think of light as a wave For this we need to know that light is also an "Electro-magnetic field" - a combination of electric-field and magnetic-field - the same thing that causes static electricity and magnets to attract (or repel) things. Light is ...

Ben Ross could not find a way to get his class interested into this time period, so he decided to try to make a group, He would play like a Hitler type scenario and his class would bethe Jewish people. He would make this group open to the whole school. Ben Ross told his idea to his class. He announced the group, and he had a pre...

    INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE SUBSIDIARY LEVEL WAVES SUMMARY 4. 1 Travelling wave characteristics A medium is a material through which a wave passes. When a wave passes, each part of the medium moves away from its normal position and then returns. This is called an oscillation. Oscillations within the medium are slight movements either side of the normal position. The wave motion is the disturbance that passes through the medium. A wave pulse causes the medium to have one oscillation. A continuou...

    Surfing has been around for many years, in fact since 400 A. D and people are still going hard at it today and will for many more years to come. The very first surfers were the Island folk who would use the waves to get over the coral reefs and back to shore after their hard days of fishing. They found that this was the easiest and quickest way of transport over the reefs so they continued to do it for many years. As time went on the art of riding waves then developed into more of a 'leisure spo...
  • Waves Water Wave Tsunamis
    487 words
    The phenomenon we call a tsunami is a series of waves of extremely long wavelength and period generated in a body of water by an impulsive disturbance that displaces the water. Although tsunamis are often referred to as 'tidal waves' by English-speaking people, they are not caused by the tides and are unrelated to them. Tsunamis are primarily associated with earthquakes in oceanic and coastal regions. When an earthquake occurs, the energy travels outward in all directions from the source. This c...

    Tsunami A tsunami is a large water wave that is generated by seismic activity in or underlying layers known as faults. These enormous wave have historically affected many ways of life and still lie as a major factor for destruction in our coastal communities throughout the world. A tsunami is a wave chain or series of waves that is generated in a body of water by sea disturbance that vertically displaces the water. Earthquakes, landslides, volcanic activity and even cosmic materials can generate...
  • Tsunamis Tsunami Water Wave
    545 words
    A tsunami is a wave train, or series of waves, generated in a body of water. Earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions, explosions, and even the impact of cosmic bodies, such as meteorites, can generate tsunamis. These waves can savagely attack coastlines, causing devastating property damage and loss of life. In English, the word tsunami means "harbor wave." Represented by two characters, the top character, "tsu," means harbor, while the bottom character, "nami," means "wave." In the past, tsu...

    Sound Waves Waves are disturbances that travel through a space while changing its matter. A sound wave is what allows us to hear sounds. It is created by vibrations, which are made by the movement of matter. Sound waves must travel through a solid, a liquid, or a gas. The more tight the particles, the faster the wave will travel. This would mean that a sound wave travels fastest through solids and slowest through gases. The speed that it travels through a liquid would come somewhere in between ...

    My Life With The Wave is about a man who takes home a wave from the ocean. I think his relationship with the wave can be compared to the relationship of a man and woman. At first he "meets" the wave in the ocean and as he is walking away he feels the other waves "staring" at him. This could be because he is taking the water away from where it should be, but the wave wanted to go like a woman who wants only what she wants and won't listen to anyone. When the man gets on the train he realizes he ...
