Properties of Waves

Worksheet (2 pages) and Homework (1 page) (with answers) for Properties of Waves. Including definition of waves in terms of energy, difference between (and examples of) transverse and longitudinal waves, parts of waves such as areas of compression and rarefaction, wavelength and amplitude, and explaining the frequency and period of waves.

A corresponding presentation is free to use and embedded at in Section 4 (Waves).

Written for the Cambridge IGCSE Coordinated Sciences and Combined Sciences courses, but obviously a large content overlap with various GCSE courses also.

This resource is the first in a series of resources on the topic of Waves and is being made available as a free sample.
