Physics 11

You are creating waves in a rope by shaking your hand back & forth. W/out changing the distance your hand moves, you begin to shake it faster & faster. What happens to each of the following aspects of the wave?

Amplitude remains the same as the distance shaken remained the same

Frequency increases with the increased speed as more cycles are now occurring per second

Period decreases as it now takes fewer seconds to complete a cycle with the increased speed

Velocity increases along with the velocity of the shaking

Is that correct? Thanks a bunch! :)

  1. velocity is usually a function of the transmission medium

    probably doesn't change

  2. V is constant bc electromagnetic waves are always V constant. How though can V be constant but there be more cycles occurring per second?
    Thanks again :)
