Wave Questions & Answers

What is the Schrödinger equation?
In quantum mechanics, the Schrö dinger equation is a mathematical equation that describes the changes over time of a physical system in which quantum effects, such as wave-particle duality, are significant.
What is the difference between Longitudinal and Transverse Wave?
A longitudinal wave is a kind of wave in which the movement of the medium is in the same magnitude and direction with the wave. On the other hand, a transverse wave is a kind of wave in which the movement of the medium is at a right angle to the magn
What does the person transfer to the rope by pulling it up and down at point A?
What the person transfers as he pulls the rope up and down at point A is energy
What happens when frequency of spring wave increases?
The correct answer to this question is C. When the frequency of a spring wave increases, the higher frequency shortens the wavelength, and therefore the length decreases. The velocity refers to the speed of the wave, and the frequency does not affect
