Sub Theme: Waves Motion without Material Transfer


Production of propagation of waves

Performance Objectives

Students should be able to;

  1. Generate Mechanical waves.
  2. State the important characteristics of waves.
  3. Produce circular and plane waves using a ripple tank
  4. Generate and demonstrate longitudinal and transverse waves using suitable materials.



A wave is a disturbance which travels through a medium and transfers energy from one point to another without causing any permanent displacement of the medium itself. If you drop a stone into water in a basin or swimming pool, ripples or waves will be seen spreading outward from.... View More
