Summary - SPM Physics Past Year Questions on "Waves"

Hi Malaysian SPM or O-level students wherever you may be,

1) I provide below the table which summarises the past year questions on "waves" from year 2005 to 2011. They should be of interest to those taking Physics for SPM or O-level from 2012 onwards.

2) Btw, I'm Tutor Tan of Petaling Jaya, Selangor. I can be reached at or sms: 011-2328 7882.

3) Do keep coming back to this blog because I will post not only summaries of past year questions but also discuss some of the interesting questions therein (7 interesting SPM past-year questions on "Waves" have been dealt with here). I'll also provide tutorial notes covering every chapter from Form 4 to Form 5 as and when I cover the chapters with my offline tuition students comprising groups of Form 5 students at PJ/KL.

4) I believe in sharing knowledge and comparing notes with all interested parties.

5) For a start, you may want to look at Yr 2005, Paper 1, Question 35 and share with me what should the answer be: C or D? And, why? If the waves are not water waves but electromagnetic waves, would your answer still be the same?

Cheers & Happy SPMing...
