Light and sound waves can be studied with these printable physics flash cards.
There are 8 flash cards in this set (2 pages to print.)
1. Print out the cards.
2. Cut along the dashed lines.
3. Fold along the solid lines.
Sample flash cards in this set:
|crest||point of maximum displacement above equlibrium|
|trough||point of maximum displacement below equilibrium|
|amplitude||maximum distance away from rest position (above or below equilibrium|
|wavelength||distance a wave travels before its cycle repeats, measured crest to crest/ trough to trough|
|reflection||when a wave strikes a boundary and bounces back toward the source|
|refraction||change in direction of a wave due to change in its speed as it goes through a different medium|
|absorption||causes the atoms and molecules to vibrate more creating heat energy.|
|diffraction||bending of waves around small objects and the spreading out of waves past small objects.|
