In 1798, Wellesley succeeded Sir John Shore as the new governor General, so. 4th Anglo Mysore war was led by Wellesley and not Shore, I guess? Ma'am please confirm.

You're right. It was Wellesley(1798-1805), and not John Shore.
Nice sir .keep it up...plz make next video on Dopler effect..
thanks dear

  2. Waves and wave Motion

  3. Waves are everywhere in nature -Sound waves, - visible light telephone chord waves, stadium waves, earthquake waves, radio waves, microwaves water waves, sine waves, waves, waves on a string, slinky waves

  4. copy this What is a wave? 4 a wave is a disturbance that travels through a medium from one location to another. - a wave is the motion of a disturbance

  5. Types of Waves - There are two main types of waves Mechanical waves - Some physical medium is being disturbed - The wave is the propagation of a disturbance through a medium Electromagnetic waves - No mediumrequired Examples are light,radio waves, x-rays

  6. General Features of Waves -In wave motion, energy is transferred ver a distance Matter is not transferred over a distance All waves carry energy The amount of energy and the mechanism responsible for the transport of the energy differ

  7. Mechanical Wave Requirements -Some source of disturbance A medium that can be disturbed some physical mechanism through which elements of the medium can influence each other

  8. Pulse on a String - The wave is generated bya flick on one end of the string The string is under tension A single bump is formed and travels along the strinsg -The bump is called a pulse

  9. Pulse on a String - The string is the medium through which the pulse travels The pulse has a definite height - The pulse has a definite speed of propagation along the medium The shape of the pulse changes very little as it travels along the string - A continuous flicking of the string would produce a periodic disturbance which would form a wave

  10. Transverse Wave - A traveling wave or pulse that causes the elements of the disturbed medium to move perpendicular to the direction of propagation is called a transverse wave - The particle motion is shown by the blue arrow The direction of propagation is hown by the red arrow
