Online Calculators since 2009
In the Waves section of Physics we explore Physics Tutorials which guide your through the various skills and learning material within this section. We also provide online Waves Calculators which allow you to calculate specific Waves formula in support of the tutorials or to check and verify your own calculations in support of your homework, coursework or thesis.
This section begins with the definition of waves and their classification based on specific criteria and the (simplified) equation of waves. Then, it continues with some elements and features as well as also the general equation of waves, where quantities such as velocity and acceleration of oscillating particles of waves are discussed. The difference between speed of wave and that of oscillating particles is explained. Energy and power of waves are other concepts discussed in this section as well as properties such as interference and diffraction. Finally, we cover information on sound waves (including power and intensity) and electromagnetic ones (including some info about light).
In this Waves section of Physics we cover the following topics:
|11.1||Types of Waves. The Simplified Equation of Waves|
|11.2||General Equation of Waves|
|11.3||Energy and Power of Waves|
|11.4||Interference of Waves|
|11.5||Sound Waves. Intensity and Sound Level|
|11.6||Electromagnetic Waves. Light|
|11.7||Diffraction of Waves|
The following Physics Calculators are provided in support of the Waves tutorials.
