(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 massenergy
equivalence;
(D) describe the process of radioactive decay given
an isotope and halflife;
(E) describe the role of massenergy 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.
