• Q7
The amplitude of two light waves (Light Wave A and Light Wave B) as a function of time are shown below. Refer to the information and graphs shown above. Compare the period of time for Light Wave A to that of Light Wave B. Light Wave A has a period of time that is ―
one-fourth the period of time for Light Wave B
the same as the period of time for Light Wave B
twice the period of time for Light Wave B
one-half the period for Light Wave B
