Problem 14E

If you shake the end of a spring to produce a wave, how does the frequency of the wave compare with the frequency of your shaking hand? Does your answer depend on whether you’re producing a transverse wave or a longitudinal wave? Defend your answer.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 14E Step 1 of 1 : The source of all the waves are the vibrating objects. Frequency is defined as the number of oscillations per second. So the frequency of vibration of shaking hand is identical to the frequency of the wave it produces, whether it is transverse or longitudinal wave is immaterial. Therefore, the frequency of shaking hand determines the frequency of the generated wave.
