    (C) investigate and calculate the relationship between wave speed, frequency, and wavelength;

    (D) compare and contrast the characteristics and behaviors of transverse waves, including electromagnetic waves and the electromagnetic spectrum, and longitudinal waves, including sound waves;

    (E) investigate behaviors of waves, including reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference, resonance, polarization, and the Doppler effect; and

    (F) describe and predict image formation as a consequence of reflection from a plane mirror and refraction through a thin convex lens.

  (12) The student analyzes the concepts of atomic, nuclear, and quantum phenomena. The student is expected to:

    (A) describe the photoelectric effect and the dual nature of light;

    (B) compare and explain emission spectra produced by various atoms;

    (C) calculate and describe the applications of mass-energy equivalence;

    (D) describe the process of radioactive decay given an isotope and half-life;

    (E) describe the role of mass-energy equivalence for areas such as nuclear stability, fission, and fusion; and

    (F) explore technology applications of atomic, nuclear, and quantum phenomena using the standard model such as nuclear stability, fission, and fusion, nanotechnology, radiation therapy, diagnostic imaging, semiconductors, superconductors, solar cells, and nuclear power.
