Seeing with sound: sound lab quiz

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson  |  RAR

Explore how sound travels as a wave. Examine diagrams and simulations to answer a series of questions about sound properties. For example, identify how sound waves compress particles. Transmit sounds using a range of tools such as a hammer, whistle or snare drum. Examine definitions of wave properties and notice that sound travels faster in denser materials such as steel. This learning object is one in a series of five objects. The series is also packaged as a combined learning object.

Students use a wave model to explain the behavior of sound.
Students explore the basic properties of sound waves.
Students test the effect that a range of devices have on sound wavelength, amplitude, frequency and medium density.
