Longitudinal wave: region of increased density: compression; region of reduced density: rarefaction; compressions are the darker areas on the wave; the compressions and rarefactions move with constant speed v; wavelength is distance from one rarefaction to the next or one compression to the next; the speed does not depend on the frequency!


A sound is a wave and frequency determines pitch In your mind what is sound? Sound is an example of a mechanical wave and is produced by a vibrating object.

How Do Waves Travel? {Introductory Observation Activity for Mechanical Waves}

Start making waves in your class by using an engaging observation activity to get students excited about the upcoming unit! This product is a great lab activity to get students thinking about mechanical waves - what causes a wave to start, how the energy is transferred through the medium, and how the wave's energy affects objects in the medium.
