As a sound wave moves from the lips of a speaker to the ear of a listener, particles of air vibrate back and forth in the same direction and the opposite direction of energy transport. Each individual particle pushes on its neighbouring particle so as to push it forward. The collision of particle #1 with its neighbor serves to restore particle #1 to its original position and displace particle #2 in a forward direction. This back and forth motion of particles in the direction of energy transport creates regions within the medium where the particles are pressed together and other regions where the particles are spread apart. Longitudinal waves can always be quickly identified by the presence of such regions.
Refraction: Refraction occurs when light enters a more or less optically dense medium, which therefore has a different refractive index (measure of the velocity light can travel at in the medium compared to in a vacuum in which it can travel at 2.9 x 108ms-1). This causes the light’s speed to increase or decrease, which results in the rays bending towards or away from the normal, so the position of the image formed is dependent on the refractive indices of the two media. For refraction to occur, the light rays have to hit the boundary between media at an angle to the normal (which is 90 degrees to the boundary), otherwise no change in direction will occur, only a change in velocity. Therefore, if the light rays hit the boundary between the different media at a perpendicular (90 degree) angle, they will continue to go straight. This occurs because the angle at which the rays hit the boundary (called the angle of incidence) determines the angle at which the rays will refract (called the angle of refraction).
Refracting Telescopes work by refracting the light rays going in through the telescope. This phenomenon is called refraction. Refraction occurs because light changes speed when it moves from one medium into another. Mediums are regions that’ll allow waves to travel through it, mediums like air, water, glass, and more, each have a reflective index. Each mediums have varying refractive indexes, the higher the refractive index, the more light is slowed down due to the medium.
For example, at 10 per cent of the speed of light an object’s mass is only 0,5 percent more than normal, while at 90 percent of the speed of light it would be more than twice its normal mass. As an object approaches the speed of light, its mass rises ever more quickly, so it takes more and more energy to speed it up further. It can in fact never reach the speed of light, because by then its mass will have become infinite, and by the equivalence of mass and energy, it would have taken an infinite amount of energy to get it there,
Contrast i. Wavelength of radiation The range of visible light is 400-700nm. Different rays have different wavelengths as shown in fig 1. So, before the experimentation one should know the specific wavelength of a particular radiation ii. Light refraction and image magnification Light is refracted when it enters from a medium of light into glass. When a light bends while passing through a lens, then light rays are focused at a point that particular point is known as Focal point and due to which a larger image of the object is observed.
There are three main consequences that formed in it. The direction of the planets that stay in an orbit which is around the sun is opposite. The force from the sun goes through the orbit, and “control” the force between each planet and the balance in the orbit. Also, the direction of the force from the planets to the sun I opposite from the sun to the planets. This help them to balance, and stay in the orbit.
The other beam reflects off of a flat mirror which allows this mirror to move a very short distance (typically a few millimeters) away from the beamsplitter. The two beams reflect off of their respective mirrors and are recombined when they meet back at the beamsplitter. Because the path that one beam travels is a fixed length and the other is constantly changing as its mirror moves, the signal which exits the interferometer as the result of two beams “interfering” with each other. The resulting signal is called an interferogram. As the interferogram is measured, all frequencies are being measured simultaneously.
Ultraviolet light contains too much energy to properly and consistently assist photosynthesis. This inconsistency is expressed in the initial logger pro data (screenshot/example located 2 pages prior). Every trial of the UV light, showed how the slope would increase until about 2:30 minutes through the 5 minute testing. The slope would then begin to drastically decrease, expressing that photosynthesis was occuring. Photosynthesis is affected by different types of lights and wavelength
