Physics P1 - Electromagnetic Waves

Electromagnetic waves, which you have to learn for physics p1.


1. What is the formula to calulate wve speed?

  • Wave speed=frequency x wavelength
  • Wave speed=amplitude x speed
  • Wave speed=wavelength/time
  • Wave speed=wavelength/frequency
  • Wave speed=amplitude x frequency

A few spelling errors but overall easy to understand questions and answers. Relevant questions asked on electromagnetic waves! 

Useful for AQA P1 exam.

Check your answers at the end and then see what you may need to revise over
