Making Waves

Complete this worksheet after you finish reading the section “Wave
Interactions.”

Diagram and label the interaction described below, and then answer the
questions
that follow.

Wave A, with an amplitude of 3 m, meets wave B, with an amplitude of 3 m.


When
A and B overlap, the wave produced (C) has an amplitude of 6 m.

1. What type of wave interaction is described? Explain your answer.

2. If wave A were to overlap with a different wave to produce a new wave that
had an amplitude of 0 m instead of 6 m, would this be the same type of
interaction
as described above?_______________________
