Study Notes

Waves

  • The highest point of a wave is known as the crest.
  • The distance from the wave's crest to its resting position is known as amplitude.
  • The length of a wave between the same points of two waves is called wavelength.

Signals

  • Analog signals are made of waves with a continuous pattern.
  • Digital signals contain binary code of zeros and ones.

Sound

  • Sound waves can travel through solids, liquids, and gases.
  • The sound's pitch is determined by the frequency of the wave.

Instruments

  • The string family of instruments manipulates sound waves to make music.

Electricity

  • Static electricity stays in the place it was created and doesn't move from one place to another.
  • Current electricity is the form of electricity when an electrical charge is given a path to move through.
  • Conductors are things that allow easy travel of electricity.
  • Electromagnetic induction is the process of generating electricity by making electrons move around each other.

Energy

  • Kinetic energy is the type of energy due to motion.
  • Potential energy is the type of energy stored, or due to position.
  • The term used for the process of changing energy from one form to another is energy conversion.
  • According to the Law of Conservation of Energy, the total amount of energy in the Universe remains constant.
  • The Law of Conservation of Energy states that the total energy of a system remains constant.

Energy Conversion

  • Chemical energy is converted to kinetic energy in a scenario such as a car engine.
