The SPM Physics Workbook is developed under the One-School.net Free Books Project. The content of this book is strictly follow Malaysia SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) syllabus. The aim of this project is to provide a complete electronic supplementary network for students to develop self-learning skills by breaking the spoon-feed rituals and to encourage them to compile educational information from the Internet.
1. A water wave is produced from a source of frequency 25 Hz. If the wavelength is 0.8 cm, what is the velocity of propagation of the water wave?
0.2m
20m
31.25m
3.125m

2. Which of the following quantities will cause the amplitude of a wave changes?

Type of the wave
Energy of the wave
Wavelength of the wave
Frequency of the wave.

3. The wavelength of a propagating wave is not affected by

the frequency of the wave
the velocity of the wave
the energy of the wave
the medium of wave that propagates

4. The figure above shows a transverse wave. The wavelength of the wave is equal to

 2x x

5. The main difference between transverse wave and longitudinal wave is

The wave pattern
The direction of the vibration of the particles in the wave
Transverse wave propagates faster than longitudinal wave.
Transverse wave can travels in vacuum while longitudinal wave cannot.

6. Which of the following waves is longitudinal wave?

Microwave
Light wave
Sound wave

7. The figure above shows the simulation of longitudinal wave by using a slinky spring. What is the wavelength of the longitudinal wave?
15cm
10cm
5cm
Can't be determined from the diagram

8. The figure above shows the simulation of transverse wave by using a slinky spring. What is the wavelength of the transverse wave?
25cm
20cm
5cm
12.5cm
