Module 3: Waves and Thermodynamics
Module 3: Waves and Thermodynamics is the third module of Year 11 HSC Physics. This module explores properties and behaviour of different types of waves, as well as the concept of thermodynamics.
Inquiry question: What are the properties of all waves and wave motion?
Inquiry question: How do waves behave?
- Progressive and Standing Waves (Standing Waves on Strings)
Inquiry question: What evidence suggests that sound is a mechanical wave?
Ray Model of Light
Inquiry question: What properties can be demonstrated when using the ray model of light?
Inquiry question: How are temperature, thermal energy and particle motion related?
