EM Spectrum & Light

(SNB pages 41 & 42 / Cornell Style Notes)
Electromagnetic waves consist of vibrating electric and magnetic fields that move through space at the speed of light.
Electromagnetic Spectrum = the complete range of electromagnetic waves placed in order of increasing frequency
Electromagnetic waves don’t require a medium, so they can travel through the vacuum of outer space.
All electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed.
Visible light = electromagnetic waves that you can see
Visible spectrum = ROY G.Biv /Colors of the rainbow / i = indigo
Rainbows form because light is being refracted or bent through raindrops which act as a prism.
Prisms are triangular transparent materials that separate or refract light into its component colors.

Wave Properties
(Use SNB pages 40 & 41 / Cornell style notes) Alternative title: Using Light
Wave = a disturbance that transfers energy from place to place.
Energy = the ability to do work
Medium = the material through which a wave travels
Vibration = a repeated back and forth or up and down motion
Crest = high point of a wave
Trough = low point of a wave
Amplitude = the maximum distance the particles of the medium carrying the wave move away from their rest positions
Wavelength = The distance between 2 corresponding parts of a wave
Frequency = # of complete waves that pass a given point in a certain amount of time
Hertz = The unit of measurement for frequency

TEST ANSWERS

(Copy on SNB pages 33, 34, & 35)
1. Biology is the study of living things.
2. Homeostasis is maintaining stable internal conditions.
3. Structure is how something is made.
4. Function is what something does.
5. A hypothesis is a possible explanation or “educated guess.”
6. An experiment tests a hypothesis.
7. Qualitative observations describe qualities not expressed with numbers, like bitter or sweet.
8. Quantitative observations are data that deal with numbers or amounts.
9. Characteristics of Living things :
All living things:
are made of cells/need homeostasis/
need and use energy/grow and develop/
respond to their surroundings/reproduce/
contain water, proteins, lipids, carbs, and DNA
10. In organisms, structure is related to function. Toes are the structure and swimming is the function.
(Webbed toes enabling swimming shows the relationship between structure and function.)
11. Hypothesis: Crickets will chirp more often as they get warmer.
12. Conclusion: The data shows that crickets chirp more often as temperature rises.
cricketgraph.gif
13. A triple beam balance is used to measure mass
14. A graduated cylinder is used to measure volume.

Questions to do in place of a summary:

15. What is biology?

16. Explain why temperature was the manipulated variable in the cricket experiment.
(First explain the term manipulated variable. Then relate temperature to this explanation.)

17. Explain why number of chirps was the responding variable in the cricket experiment.

18. Explain how the data supports the hypothesis in the cricket experiment.
cricketgraph.gif

Background knowledge for question 19:
Rabbits, lizards, and cacti all have the characteristics of life. Rabbits, lizards, and cacti are all made of cells that require homeostasis to survive. An organism's ability to keep water in its cells is part of homeostasis. Rabbits don’t sweat from their skin to conserve water. Lizards have scales on their skin to conserve water. The pores on cactus skins can close to retain water during the day. Rabbits have a difference from lizards and cacti in maintaining homeostasis. Rabbits maintain a constant body temperature, but lizards and cacti don’t. From this we can see some differences, but rabbits, lizards and cacti all share the characteristics of life.

19. Relating to cells, homeostasis, water and temperature; compare and contrast rabbits, lizards, and cacti.
(In other words, cells, homeostasis, water, and temperature are characteristics of all living things. Compare and contrast rabbits, lizards and cactus using these characteristics.)

Self-Check: Your answers should be similar to the following items.

16. Explain why temperature was the manipulated variable in the cricket experiment.
Answer: The manipulated variable is what the experimenter changes in an experiment. The experimenter change the temperature, so temperature is the manipulated variable.

17. Explain why number of chirps was the responding variable in the cricket experiment.
Answer: The thing that changes as a result of the change in the manipulated variable is the responding variable. The number of chirps changes as a result of a change in temperature, so number of chirps is the responding variable.

18. Explain how the data supports the hypothesis in the cricket experiment.
Answer: The hypothesis is that crickets will chirp more as they get warmer. For the temperatures 15⁰C, 20⁰C, and 25⁰C, the increase in the average number of chirps was 83, 127, and 168 respectively. This data shows that the hypothesis was supported.

19. Relating to cells, homeostasis, water and temperature; compare and contrast rabbits, lizards, and cacti.
Answer: Rabbits, lizards, and cacti all are made of cells, require homeostasis, and have ways of conserving cellular water. Homeostasis in rabbits includes a constant body temperature, whereas it is not in lizards and cacti.

Scientific Method Cats

Read the story and don't write the blue text. Write the title above on page 13 in your science notebook.

A pet owner had his four cats boarded while he travels. The cats seemed healthy when they arrived, but a technician notices that two of the cats start scratching and chewing at their skin. After three days, these same two cats have bare patches of skin with red sores. The technician knows that cat's sometimes change their behavior when moved to a new place, so she watches all four cats for two days. Other than the scratching and chewing by the cats with sores, the behavior of all four cats seems the same. The technician called the owner and found out that he fed the cats the same food as she did.

While observing the cats, the technician also noticed that the cats scratched most after using the litter box. She called the owner and asked what brand of litter he put in the cat's litter box. The owner used a different brand than she did, so she compared the ingredients of the two kinds of litter. The difference was that the owners litter was deodorant free, while the brand she used had a deodorant. Based on this information the technician formed a hypothesis.

The technician got the cats owner’s permission to test her hypothesis. One cat was used as a control and the other cat experienced the manipulated variable. The technician observes the cats for one week. During this time she collects data. The data show that the control cat scratches and chews more often than the experimental cat does. The sores on the skin of the experimental cat begin to heal, but those on the control cat do not. The technician then switched the litter of the control and experimental cat to test her findings.

The technician knows that cat's sometimes change their behavior when moved to a new place, so she watches all four cats for two days. Other than the scratching and chewing by the cats with sores, the behavior of all four cats seems the same.

The owner used a different brand than she did, so she compared the ingredients of the two kinds of litter. The difference was that the owners litter was deodorant free, while the brand she used had a deodorant.


The technician gets the cats owners permission to test her hypothesis. The cat using litter with deoderant would be the control used for comparison. The cat just being given deoderant-free litter would be the experimented on subject. The technician observes the cats for one week. During this time she collects data. The data show that the control cat scratches and chews more often than the experimental cat does. The sores on the skin of the experimental cat begin to heal, but those on the control cat do not.
