A difference between electric forces and gravitational forces is that gravitational forces are not affected by the inverse-square law. separation distance. repulsive interaction. infinite range. None of the above choices are correct.
answer
repulsive interaction
question
angular velocity, w
answer
numbers of revolution per second
question
center of mass
answer
average position of all the mass that makes up the body.
question
center of gravity
answer
the average position of weights distribution
question
linear momentum
answer
p=mv
question
angular momentum
answer
=lw
question
vibrating
answer
anything that moves back and forth, side to side, in and out, or up and down is vibrating
question
mechanical wave
answer
a periodic change both in space and time
question
longitudinal waves
answer
the direction of motion (to and fro) of the medium is parallel to the wave propagation direction
question
transverse waves
answer
the motion of the medium is perpendicular to the direction of the wave
question
wave interference
answer
The overlapping of waves of the same frequency can form the interference phenomenon resulting an increase, decrease or no-effect to the medium.
question
standing waves
answer
When two sets of waves of equal amplitude and wavelength pass through each other in opposite directions, stable regions of constructive and destructive interference are produced
question
Nodes
answer
Nodes are the regions of minimal or zero displacement
question
antinodes
answer
the regions of maximum displacement
question
sounds
answer
waves produced by the vibrations of matter
question
pitch
answer
person's subjective impression about the frequency
question
normal sound frequency range
answer
20-20,000 Hz
question
echo
answer
reflection of sound
question
refraction
answer
when sound wave continue its path into the second medium after it hits the interface and bend
question
Resonance
answer
When the frequency of the external forced vibrations on an object matches the object's natural frequency, a dramatic increase in amplitude occurs
