This is the 1st lesson in the series, "Waves in the Real World." This lesson reviews terms amplitude, wave length, frequency, period, and velocity. It also demonstrates how to use a diagram to explain the meaning of a 3D wave length. how to solve rea...l life problems involving water waves. (16:35)[more]

This is the 6th lesson is the series, "Waves in the Real World." The lesson explains how the Doppler Effect is used to explain the creation of shockwaves. It specifically examines the creation of shockwaves formed by jet aircraft, storms, and earthqu...akes. (14:33)[more]

This is the 3rd lesson in the series,"Waves in the Real World." It reviews the knowledge of single split diffraction, how to use this concept to explain interference patterns formed by two slits and by diffraction gratings. (13:19)

This is the 2nd lesson in the series, "Waves in the Real World." It investigates a property of wave called diffraction. The lesson shows how to use the Huygen's Principle to predict the shapes of wave front at a barrier. The lesson also demonstrates ...how to use constructive and destructive interference to explain the diffraction pattern formed when laser light is shone through a thin slit. (14:42)[more]

This is the 4th lesson in the series, "Waves in the Real World." This lesson investigates the Doppler Effect and how the Doppler Effect can be applied to water waves, sound waves and light. (17:04)

This is the 5th lesson in the series, "Waves in the Real World." It is a further investigation of how to apply the Doppler Effect in real life situations. The lesson demonstrates how to apply the principles of the Doppler Effect in solving everyday p...roblems. (23:01)[more]
