PhET Teacher Ideas & Activities: Waves on a String Discovery Activity

PhET Teacher Ideas & Activities: Waves on a String Discovery Activity

This is an inquiry-based activity developed for use with the Physics Education Technology "Wave on a String" simulation. Students conduct an experiment to determine the relationships between: 1) frequency and wavelength, 2) frequency and wave speed, 3) tension and wave speed, and 4) amplitude and wave speed. Appropriate for 9th grade physical science or algebra-based high school physics. <i><b>Note:</b> The "Wave On A String" simulation must be open in a browser as students perform this activity. <b>See Related Materials</b> for a link to the simulation.</i>
