User: A wave has a wavelength of 10 mm and a frequency of 5.0 hertz. What is its speed? A. 50 mm/s B. 50 hertz/s C. 2.0 mm/s D. 0.50 mm/s

Weegy: A. 50mm/s is the speed of a wavelength of 10 mm

User: Which part of the ear amplifies the vibrations from sound waves? A. outer ear B. inner ear C. middle ear D. both a and b

Weegy: C. Middle Ear is the correct answer since it serves to transform the energy of a sound wave into the internal vibrations of the bone structure of the middle ear and ultimately transform these vibrations into a compressional wave in the inner ear. [ Refer to this link for more details ]

User: The part of the ear that sends coded nerve signals to the brain is A. the outer ear. B. the inner ear. C. the middle ear. D. the eardrum.

Weegy: B. the inner ear.

User: For refraction to occur in a wave, the wave must A. strike an obstacle larger than the wavelength. B. change direction within a medium. C. enter a new medium at an angle. D. enter a new medium head-on.

Weegy: C. enter a new medium at an angle.

User: When a sound source approaches you, the pitch you hear is A. lower than when the source is stationary. B. higher than when the source is stationary. C. the same as when the source is stationary. D. first higher and then lower than the pitch of the source when stationary.

Weegy: Not moving. Not capable of being moved; fixed. Unchanging: a stationary sound.

User: In an earthquake, a P wave is a longitudinal wave. It moves through soil and rock as a A. wavy line. B. series of faults. C. series of compressions and rarefactions. D. series of crests and troughs.

Weegy: In an earthquake, a P wave is a longitudinal wave. It moves through soil and rock as a c. series of compressions and rarefactions.
