the bouncing back of an object or a wave when it hits a surface through which it cannot pass
law of reflection
the rule that the angle of reflection equals the angle of incidence
the bending of waves as they enter a new medium at an angle
the bending of waves as they move around a barrier or pass through an opening
the interaction between waves that meet
the interference that occurs when waves combine to make a wave with a larger amplitude
the interference that occurs when two waves combine to make a wave with a smaller amplitude
a wave that appears to stand in one place, even though it is really two waves interfering as they pass through each other
a point of ZERO amplitude on a standing wave
a point of MAXIMUM amplitude on a standing wave
the increase in the amplitude of a vibration that occurs when external vibrations match an object's natural frequency
