waves get absorbed into the material; amplitude gets smaller and smaller
The number of waves passing a point in a
Sound is the disturbance that travels through a medium as a longitudinal wave.
:​ crest, trough, wavelength, amplitude
when a wave strikes a barrier and bounces back
move in and out as a series of compressions and rarefactions. The motion of the medium is parallel to the direction of the wave.
the bending of waves around a barrier or through an opening in a barrier
move in circular motion. They are combination waves that move both ways (Transverse and longitudinal
The matter (solid, liquid or gas) through which a mechanical wave travels through.
Light waves are transverse waves which are the only electromagnetic waves that are visible to the human eye. (Visible Light)
the bending of waves due to a change in speed
vibrates up and down or right to left. The motion of the medium is at right angles to the direction of the wave.
The greatest movement from rest. Found by measuring the distance from rest to rest or from trough to trough. The greater the amplitude, the greater the energy
Down
A traveling disturbance that carries energy from one place to another.
he distance between 2 consecutive (one after another) crests or troughs. (The shorter the wavelength, the higher the frequency.)
The electromagnetic spectrum is made up of transverse waves from gamma rays to radio waves. It is organized from the smallest wavelength (gamma rays) to the largest wavelength (radio waves).
Light waves that do not require a medium to travel through. They travel through a vacuum (a space free of particles)
(longitudinal/ compressional, transverse, surface)
when two or more waves arrive at the same time and combine into one
The greatest movement from rest. Found by measuring the distance from rest to rest or from trough to trough. The greater the amplitude, the greater the energy
Highest point (peaks)
Empty Space - the absence of matter
Lowest point
