Abstract

Students will discover that:

Waves come in mainly two different types (transverse and longitudinal)

How the type of wave, type of medium, wavelength, temperature, and depth effect the velocity of a wave

This relationship can be used to determine the distances to stars and galaxies beyond 100pc.
