Waves, Radio Waves and Microwaves

This resource from Defence Dynamics looks at waves and the electromagnetic spectrum. The resources are split into two student activity sheets.

The Describing waves activity sheet looks at how longitudinal and transverse waves are described (amplitude, wavelength, frequency). It then looks at seismic waves and the effects that these have during an earthquake.

The Radio waves and microwaves activity sheet considers the electromagnetic spectrum and the use of radio waves and microwaves in wireless communication.
