A physical environment in which phenomena occur
A wave that requires a medium through which to travel
A wave that consists of oscillating electric and magnetic fields, which radiate outward at the speed of light
A three-dimensional surface whose points are equally distant from the center; a globe
A wave in which the particles of the medium move perpendicularly to the direction the wave is traveling
A wave in which particles of the medium vibrate parallel to the direction of wave motion
The highest point of a wave
The lowest point of a wave
The maximum distance that the particles of a wave's medium vibrate from their rest position
The Distance from any point on a wave to an identical point on the next wave
In physics, the time that it takes a complete cycle or wave oscillation to occur
The number of cycles or vibrations per unit of time; also the number of waves produced in a given amount of time
An observed change in the frequency of a wave when the source or observer is moving
The bouncing back of a ray of light,sound or heat when the ray hits a surface that it does not go through
Bending of wave as it passes through an opening
The bending of light as it passes through a medium
the combination of two or more waves that results in a single wave
A superposition of two or more waves that produces an intensity equal to the sum of the intensities of the individual waves
A pattern of vibration that simulates a wave that is standing still
A superposition of two or more waves that produces an intensity equal to the difference of the intensities of the individual waves
Wiggle in time, No net movement
Wiggle in time and space, Net movement of wave, Created by vibration
Only appear on surface of 2 medians, particles move parallel and perpendicular to wave direction
Line of equilibrium
Reflection is inverted
Reflection is identical
Point of Destructive interference
Point of Constructive interference
