Science: Mod 5 - What's In A wave?
Terms in this set (10)
Any wave in which the particles of the medium vibrate perpendicularly to the direction the wave moves. These waves do not need matter in order to travel.
The lowest point from the rest position between two crests in a transverse wave.
The highest point from the rest position between two troughs in a transverse wave.
These waves compress the particles of the medium closer together in the same direction the wave moves. Sometimes called "compression waves", these require a medium.
The part of a longitudinal wave where the particles are pressed closer together.
The part of a longitudinal wave where the particles are spread farther apart.
The number of waves passing a point in a given amount of time. Higher frequency means more energy in the waves. The unit used is Hertz (Hz) = number of waves per second. (F = # waves/second)
The distance in meters from any point on a wave to the same point on the next wave. (Examples: crest to crest, compression to compression). Longer wavelengths mean there is less energy.
The distance wave particles move from the rest position. The greater the amplitude, the more energy is in the wave.
The speed of a wave in meters per second, in a particular direction.
