Progressive wave properties

The notes below on progressive waves first explain what those waves are and how the measurements of frequency, wavelength and velocity are taken and how they are connected. Diffraction and interference is explained including thin film interference. There is a linked video on interference which is free to view here.

There are two explanation sheets on polarisation, one explaining what it is with some practical examples. The second gives examples of applications of our knowledge of polarisation.

There is an illustrated sheet of notes on the electromagnetic spectrum with an explanation of which major properties they have in common and the special properties of each section. You can view a video lesson on The properties of the Electromagnetic Spectrum on the Curious Streaming service here

The final two sheets of notes take you through polarisation of waves, why that is important and how we use it.

There are several tuition video lessons on progressive waves available on data stick, details here.
