Waves, Radio Waves and Microwaves
This resource from Defence Dynamics looks at waves and the electromagnetic spectrum. The resources are split into two student activity sheets.
The Describing waves activity sheet looks at how longitudinal and transverse waves are described (amplitude, wavelength, frequency). It then looks at seismic waves and the effects that these have during an earthquake.
The Radio waves and microwaves activity sheet considers the electromagnetic spectrum and the use of radio waves and microwaves in wireless communication.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
