Constructive and Destructive Waves

You would do well to find a better page on the web to explain the differences between these two types of wave than the BBC Bitesize revision one. So click here to have a look. I have posted before about waves in general. You can read that here

There is also a video here, made by another teacher that explains it quite well. It comes with a music soundtrack from the 1980s – around about the time I took my GCSE (well it was called an O’Level in those days)

 

Typical exam questions on this might be:

Describe the 3 features of a constructive or destructive wave (3 marks)

or

Explain how a constructive or destructive wave shapes the coast. (4 marks)
