Question

A wave with high amplitude _____.

A.moves faster than a wave with low amplitude
B.has more energy than a wave with low amplitude
C.has a short wavelength
D.has a short period

2 Answer

  • B) Has more energy than a wave with low amplitude..... hope it helps :)
  • Answer: The correct answer is B.

    Explanation:

    Amplitude is the maximum displacement of the particle from the position of the equilibrium. The amplitude of the wave is related to the energy. Energy of the wave is directly proportional to the square of the amplitude of the wave.

    Higher the amplitude of the wave, higher will be the energy of the wave. Lower will be the amplitude, lower will be the energy of the wave.

    Therefore, a wave with high amplitude has more energy than a wave with low amplitude.
