Unit 1.1 Oscillations or Vibrations some Important Points

Difference between a Vibration, Pulse and a Wave

Vibration

— Object moving back and forth, to and fro, side to side, in and out, or up and down.

— is movement of the object with respect to time (wrt).

Pulse

— The movement in both space and timeof a single disturbance.

Wave

— Continuous movement in both space and time of periodic disturbances.

— A wave extends from one place to another.

Different kinds of waves

— Mechanical like sound, water and string waves that propagate through physical materials. These are caused by disturbances in a material and cannot travel in a vacuum.

— Electromagnetic like light and that propagate throughout space (vacuum) and some materials.

— Electric waves propagate in conductor like a radio antenna or a conducting wire.

 

Exercise 1,1.3

Briefly describe three types of waves.
