(b) Below is a diagram showing three wave fronts moving towards a solid

barrier.

solid barrier

(i) Complete the diagram to show the reflection of the wave fronts at

the barrier.

In your answer you should draw:

● a dotted line with an arrow on it to show the direction of the

reflected wave fronts,

● 3 reflected wave fronts. [4]

(ii) Mark on the diagram the wavelength of the incident waves. [1]

(iii) In what way, if at all, do the frequency, wavelength and speed

of water waves change when they are reflected? Indicate your

answer by placing a tick (✓) in the appropriate boxes.

(c) To study the reflection of sound from a solid object the apparatus

below was used.

object

sound pulse

emitter and receiver

d

A

A pulse of sound was emitted by the device at A and the time taken

for the sound pulse to travel to the object and back again (round trip

time) was measured.

This was repeated for different distances d.

The results of the investigation are shown in the table below.

(i) Complete the table above by calculating the time for the pulse of

sound to travel the distance d. [1]

(ii) Using the equation below and data from the table calculate the

speed of sound.
