Physics-Please check-I had something wrong with my
posted by Joelle on .
Would changing the frequency of a wave cause a change in amplitude? I would say only if the wave velocity remains the same because if the frequency increases, vibrations increase and then amplitude would decrease, correct?
If I had a wave diagram will 4 complete waves showing and it said the diagram represented 4 sec in time the frequency would be 1cycle/ per second, correct? The period of the wave then would be the inverse which would be 1 second/cyle, correct?
If I'm wrong please just redirect me-thank you
Wave speed and frequency are independent of amplitude. The frequency is usually determined by a vibrating object that drives the waves. The wave amplitude is determined by how much that object moves or vibrateas, and how far away it is.
Your secnd answer is correct
Thank you very much
