    • A. 

      Distance from middle line (average) to top of wave (crest)

    • B. 

      The very top point of a wave

    • C. 

      The very bottom point of a wave

    • D. 

      The distance between two crests

  • 2. 
    Which sound wave has the longest wavelength?
    • A. 

      The blue one (top)

    • B. 

      The green one (middle)

    • C. 

      The reddish one (bottom)

    • D. 

      None of them

  • 3. 
    Which sound wave has the greatest amplitude?
    • A. 

      The bottom wave

    • B. 

      The top wave

    • C. 

      Both waves have the same amplitude

  • 4. 
    Which wave has the shortest wavelength?
    • A. 

      The high frequency wave (top)

    • B. 

      The low frequency wave (bottom)

    • C. 

      They both have the same wavelength

  • 5. 
    Select all the statements that are TRUE
    • A. 

      The top sound wave has a longer wavelength than the bottom

    • B. 

      The bottom sound wave would be louder than the top one

    • C. 

      The note (pitch) of the bottom wave would be higher than the top one

    • D. 

      Both waves have the same frequency

  • 6. 
    The word 'pitch' refers to how high or low a note sounds
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 7. 
    We can hear sound waves coming out of a radio, but 'radio waves' are actually part of the electromagnetic spectrum that includes visible light.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 8. 
    Tick all the ones that are TRUE
    • A. 

      Sound waves can travel through a vacuum (space)

    • B. 

      Radio waves are sound waves

    • C. 

      Radio waves are actually part of the electromagnetic spectrum (like light)

    • D. 

      Sound can only travel through particles like air, rocks or water

  • 9. 
    How do we hear sounds?
    • A. 

      Air particles hit our eardrums

    • B. 

      The energy of the wave penetrates our brain

    • C. 

      The eardrum stays completely still
