Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Calculator Pad: Vibrations and Waves Chapter, Problem Sets WM10 - WM14

Tap the link to navigate to the Calculator Pad section. Scroll down and try any one of Problem Sets WM10 - WM14. This will be perfect practices. The problems get harder as you continue futher. Click the help links for problem-specific help.

Minds On Physics, Wave Motion Module, Mission WM8

When you can complete a Minds On Physics mission, then you know you understand. Give it a try; use the help link (textbook icon, lower right) as needed. You got this!​

Concept Builders, Waves and Sound Chapter: Name That Harmonic (Strings)

This Concept Builder is also a great fit to the video. You will be challenged to detemine the harmonic number based on a standing wave pattern, relate the frequency of one harmonic to that of another, and determine the wavelength of a wave from the pattern and the length of the string (or rope).

Physics Classroom Tutorial, Vibrations and Waves Chapter, Lesson 4 - Standing Wave Mathematics

This Tutorial pages discusses the standing wave diagrams and the mathematical relationships for the various harmonics of a vibrating rope (or string or wire).
