Additional information

Graphing Waves

The x-Axis
It is possible to graph waves in a number of different ways.
Usually, the x-axis of the graph is used for time.
It may also be used as a spatial dimension, usually in the direction of the wave’s motion.

The y-Axis
The y-axis of the graph is usually used to plot the displacement of particles in the medium.
For transverse waves, this displacement is perpendicular to the wave’s motion. For longitudinal waves, it is parallel.

Plotting Against Position
If the x-axis is used for the wave’s position, time must be kept at a fixed value.
This means that the graph represents a “snap shot” of the wave.
This type of graph can be useful for looking at the overall structure of a wave.

Measuring Wavelength
In this type of graph, it is possible to measure the wave’s wavelength.
It will simply be the interval on the x-axis between two crests or two troughs.

Plotting Against Time
If the x-axis is used for time, the position of the measurement must be kept at a fixed value.
This means that the graph represents the motion of a single particle.
This type of graph shows how the wave changes over time.

Measuring Period
In this type of graph, the wave’s period can be found.
It will simply be the interval on the x-axis between two crests or two troughs.

Oscilloscopes
A cathode ray oscilloscope can show how an electrical signal changes over time.
The curve displayed on the CRO is the intensity of the wave over time.
By connecting a microphone to a CRO, it is possible to analyse sound waves.
