Brownian motion clicker question

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy -- pseudocolor 6. Scanning Tunneling Microscopy, color     Scanning Tunneling Microscopy: Think of those pretty pictures we looked at in class of iron atoms on an atomically flat copper surface. Q: Why are different parts of the image different colors than others? a. Different elements emit different colors of light. b. The color of the light detected by the microscope depends on the distance between the tip and the surface. c. The colors were invented by the IBM scientists to make the easier to make sense of (pseudocolor).

Self-sustaining oscillations are usually energy flowing from one form to another, back and forth What are some common oscillations we can think of? Students 2008: Electromagnetic; vibration of vocal cords or speaker; water surface; pendulum; mass on a spring; motion of a piston in an engine; atom oscillating Are there two forms of energy that you can identify?

Students 2008: Electromagnetic; vibration of vocal cords or speaker; water surface; pendulum; mass on a spring; motion of a piston in an engine; atom oscillating

Are there two forms of energy that you can identify?

Mass on a spring…oscillation has a frequency and an amplitude Frequency (hertz) = number of cycles per second Period (seconds) = time per cycle (inverse of frequency) Amplitude (often height) = magnitude of oscillation (Tricky!) Oleg Alexandrov wikipedia Amplitude is displacement from equilibrium

Frequency (hertz) = number of cycles per second

Period (seconds) = time per cycle (inverse of frequency)

Amplitude (often height) = magnitude of oscillation

(Tricky!)

Oscillations are a foundation of waves they can easily be visualized as waves User:Evil_saltine wikipedia Oleg Alexandrov wikipedia

A wave is a disturbance that propagates through space…it carries energy from one place to another. The author of the book says: “ The source of all waves—sound, light or whatever—is something that is vibrating.” (“Oscillating”) This is a pretty good definition, but sometimes it’s not obvious or evident what source is “oscillating” For our purposes, the waves we care about must propagate through space and carry energy We also think about waves that don’t carry energy…examples?

This is a pretty good definition, but sometimes it’s not obvious or evident what source is “oscillating”

For our purposes, the waves we care about must propagate through space and carry energy

Let’s brainstorm on waves that carry energy … Microwaves, sound waves, light waves, radio waves, ocean waves, heat waves (infrared), gamma rays, x-rays, earthquake waves (seismic), gravitational waves,

Matter waves

Gravitational Waves

Wave has properties of an oscillation ( frequency and an amplitude ) plus speed and wavelength Frequency (hertz) = number of cycles per second Period (seconds) = time per cycle (inverse of frequency) Amplitude (often height) = magnitude of oscillation Speed (meters per second) = how quickly energy propagates through space Wavelength (meters) = distance between repeated features. http://www.3sigma.ca/gravityWaves.html

Frequency (hertz) = number of cycles per second

Period (seconds) = time per cycle (inverse of frequency)

Amplitude (often height) = magnitude of oscillation

Speed (meters per second) = how quickly energy propagates through space

Wavelength (meters) = distance between repeated features.

Frequency and speed are the fundamental properties of a wave The frequency of the wave is determined by the frequency of the driving oscillation. The speed of the wave is determined by the physics. The wavelength (e.g. distance between crests) is determined by the frequency and speed. (Wave speed = wavelength x frequency) Wave table demo Frequency is fundamental Energy transfer Wavelength = Wave speed frequency

The frequency of the wave is determined by the frequency of the driving oscillation.

The speed of the wave is determined by the physics.

The wavelength (e.g. distance between crests) is determined by the frequency and speed.

Clicker question I am going to decrease the frequency of the oscillating source. What will happen to the wavelength? A. Nothing B. Wavelength will increase C. Wavelength will decrease D. Impossible to determine http://www.falstad.com/ripple/

Clicker Question—Wavelength, frequency, speed Suppose the wave speed is fixed for all frequencies and wavelengths. Which has a longer wavelength? Frequency = 770,000 Hertz Frequency = 97,300,000 Hertz Both are the same, since speed is fixed

Suppose the wave speed is fixed for all frequencies and wavelengths. Which has a longer wavelength?

Frequency = 770,000 Hertz

Frequency = 97,300,000 Hertz

Both are the same, since speed is fixed

Transverse Waves and Longitudinal Waves Transverse waves : “ Motion of the medium” is perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation E.g. Ocean waves Longitudinal waves: “ Motion of the medium” is in same direction as direction of wave propagation E.g. compression waves in slinky; SOUND Transverse wave demo From Zhang Jiang (our TA): The speed of longitudinal waves and transversal waves differ If there is an earthquake you will feel the vertical shake before the horizontal shake

Transverse waves :

“ Motion of the medium” is perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation E.g. Ocean waves

Longitudinal waves:

“ Motion of the medium” is in same direction as direction of wave propagation

E.g. compression waves in slinky; SOUND

Key concepts: 1. Waves transmit energy, not the material that is waving If a transmitter and receiver are not moving relative to each other then: Frequency observed = frequency transmitted

1. Waves transmit energy, not the material that is waving

If a transmitter and receiver are not moving relative to each other then:

Frequency observed = frequency transmitted

Doppler effect Frequency observed NOT equal to frequency transmitted! Because source and receiver are moving relative to each other Ripple tank Doppler Doppler demo
