  • What Is The Significance Of The P Wave Qrs Complex And T Wave

    WAVES When people think of waves they may think of a nice vacation or maybe a storm. Most people may not think about what causes waves or how waves can get so tall and powerful. In addition, people may not think about how tides are formed. The movement of waves includes information about how waves form, how they move, what happens when waves interact, and some of the effects of waves. When people visit a beach, they might realize the daily rise and fall of the water, or how high and low...

    Beginning in the summer of 1869 Gustave Courbet produced a series of paintings depicting stormy seas during his stay at Etretat on the Normandy coast. The Wave (La Vague c.1872) exhibited in the National Gallery of Victoria is one such painting that features the central motif of a cresting wave. While many viewed the work as a simple realist seascape, the political implication of the work suggested by some of Courbet’s contemporaries is hardly discernable to the modern viewer.

    SOUND Vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a person's or animal's ear. All sounds are vibrations traveling through the air as sound waves. Sound waves are caused by the vibrations of objects and radiate outward from their source in all directions. A vibrating object compresses the surrounding air molecules (squeezing them closer together) and then rarefies them (pulling them farther apart). Although the fluctuations in air pressure travel outward...

    radio stations broadcast. A radio wave (radiating electric field) propagates out from the source, traveling at the speed of light. The source, for example an antenna, creates oscillating electric(E)/ magnetic(B) fields. These fields are perpendicular not only to each other but to the direction of the traveling wave, and travel away from the antenna. The electromagnetic wave is, therefore, a transverse wave. The electric/ magnetic fields store the energy of the wave. Basically, the oscillating current...

    Characteristics and Nature of Waves In physics, a wave is a disturbance that travels through space and time, usually accompanied by the transfer of energy. Waves travel and the wave motion transfers energy from one point to another, often with no permanent displacement of the particles of the medium—that is, with little or no associated mass transport. They consist, instead, of oscillations or vibrations around almost fixed locations. For example, a cork on rippling water will bob up and down...

  • Electrocardiogram

    Electrocardiogram (Practical) What is an Electrocardiogram (ECG)? • It is a graphic recording of electrical potentials generated by the heart. (represented by vectors) • Begins with a depolarization of the heart which marks initiating event for cardiac contraction. • Electrical currents that spread through the heart are produced by 3 components: 1) Cardiac pacemaker cells 2) Specialized conduction tissue 3) Heart muscle •) Records the depolarization and repolarization potentials generated by atrial...

  • The Nature of a Sound Wave

    The basis for an understanding of sound, music and hearing is the physics of waves. Sound is a wave which is created by vibrating objects and propagated through a medium from one location to another. In this unit, we will investigate the nature, properties and behaviors of sound waves and apply basic wave principles towards an understanding of music. As discussed in the previous unit of The Physics Classroom, a wave can be described as a disturbance that travels through a medium, transporting...

  • Waves, Sound and Light

    people don’t question the things that are obvious to us. The things we see, how do we see it? What makes it visible to us? Is it only because we have eyes, or is there another factor. The great Aristotle explained it by having something in our eyes that emits “something” to an object and that’s why things are visible to us. Another question we could ask from our daily life is that how come we can hear? What is it that we hear? Why do we hear it and deaf people don’t? How do we receive any sound? People...
