Waves: What’s tested in O Level Physics

waves in o level physics: learn about longitudinal and transverse waves

In this post, let’s look at what’s tested in the topic of waves in O Level Physics.

Watch the video here to learn in detail.

Below, you’ll find a checklist on the items you would need to know on this topic on transfer of waves.

Checklist for O Level Physics Topic: Waves

describe wave motion in ropes, springs and waves in ripple tank
waves transfer energy without transferring matter
define speed, frequency, wavelength, period, amplitude and wavefront
calculation questions using velocity = frequency × wavelength (v = fλ)
differences between transverse and longitudinal waves and examples of each
