In a laboratory, a group of students perform an experiment to verify the propagation of waves in a string. They observe that the string completes 20 oscillations in 10 seconds, and the distance between two consecutive points of the wave on the string is 0.15 m. Calculate the speed of the wave propagating in the string.
0.30 m/s
0.20 m/s
0.45 m/s
0.75 m/s
1.00 m/s

Question 1:


Recently the press has reported an increase in exposure to electromagnetic radiation due to excessive use of electronic devices and the implementation of high-speed communication networks, such as 5G. Considering its impacts on human health, it is important to analyze the characteristics of electromagnetic radiation. What is the correct relationship between wavelength and radiation energy?

Question 2:


A Physics student is studying the basic principles of geometric optics and decides to conduct an experiment with rays of light incident on flat mirrors to investigate the principles of straight-line propagation, independence, and reversibility of light rays. He positions a flat mirror vertically and points a light source at an angle α relative to the mirror. Consider the incident ray, the reflected ray, and the perpendicular to the mirror surface at the point of incidence. The question about the experiment is: What is the relationship between the angles of incidence and reflection?
