#### Speed, frequency and wavelength

This episode considers how these three quantities are linked by the wave equation v = f? , measuring f using an oscilloscope, and measuring the velocity of sound in free air.

#### Wavelength, Speed of Light, Frequency - IWB

Two activities for practice and revision of speed of light, wavelength and frequency. This can be used as a homework (worksheet) and then students enter their results on to the same file opened on the IWB, they can mark each others work or their own. This has proved to be very motivating.
I suggest that you change the .xls extension to .xlt before use. As an xlt it can be placed on a VLE as a self marking exercise for revision or differentiation by task. Please rate and comment if useful.

#### Velocity Equals Wavelength times Frequency (Waves)

Wave Speed Equation
<br>
Objective: Students will be able to calculate wave speed as well as identify a situation in which the wave speed calculation would be helpful (i.e. an earthquake generating a tsunami)

#### Reflection of light - Mirror maze

Suitable for use as a starter or plenary. This is a one page diagram that the students are asked to complete. It asks the students to complete the path of a laser as it is reflected off a series of mirrors to a detector. They have to work out the angles of incidence and reflection. Requires a protractor. Can be used for AQA P1 - Waves - Reflection.
