The conversion to LaTeX should make this bank more compatible with VLEs
Quizbank - Quizbank/Python/LaTex - Category:QB/LaTeXpdf - QB - edit news
Students with minimal Python skills can now write numerical questions

\question Why do rough walls give a concert hall a  fuller  sound, compared to smooth walls?\ifkey\endnote{ placed in Public Domain by Guy Vandegrift: {\url{https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/special:permalink/1863393}}}\fi
\begin{choices}
\choice Rough walls make for a louder sound.

\question Comparing a typical church to a professional baseball stadium, the church is likely to have\ifkey\endnote{ placed in Public Domain by Guy Vandegrift: {\url{https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/special:permalink/1863393}}}\fi

\question A dense rope is connected to a rope with less density (i.e. fewer kilograms per meter).  If the rope is stretched and a wave is sent along high density rope towards the low density rope,\ifkey\endnote{ placed in Public Domain by Guy Vandegrift: {\url{https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/special:permalink/1863393}}}\fi

\CorrectChoice the low density rope supports a wave with a lower speed
\end{choices}

\question A low density rope is connected to a rope with higher density (i.e. more kilograms per meter).  If the rope is stretched and a wave is sent along the low density rope towards the high density rope,\ifkey\endnote{ placed in Public Domain by Guy Vandegrift: {\url{https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/special:permalink/1863393}}}\fi
\begin{choices}
\choice the high density rope supports a wave with a higher frequency

\CorrectChoice the high density rope supports a wave with a higher speed
\choice the high density rope supports a wave with a lower speed
\end{choices}

\question What happens to the wavelength on a wave on a stretched string if the wave passes from lightweight (low density) region of the rope to a heavy (high density) rope?\ifkey\endnote{ placed in Public Domain by Guy Vandegrift: {\url{https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/special:permalink/1863393}}}\fi
\begin{choices}
\CorrectChoice the wavelength gets longer
