Waves-Complete Study guide
Terms in this set (29)
a repeating disturbance that transfers energy through matter or space
All of the frequencies or wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation
the number of complete wavelengths that pass a point in a given time
The process of (a) substance/energy being taken in by another substance. Ex: Light waves being taken in by a black substance.
The process of (a) substance/energy being bounced off of another reflective substance at the same angle in the opposite direction of the approach. Ex: Light waves bouncing off of a mirror.
The process of (a) substance/energy being allowed through another certain substance. Ex: Light waves going through glass.
The bending of a wave as it passes at an angle from one medium to another
The very top of a wave section.
The very bottom of a wave section.
The distance between crests in a wave.
Wavelength x Frequency
The height of the wave.
All types of waves on the electromagnetic spectrum
Gamma-rays, X-rays, Ultra Violet, Visible light, infrared, Microwaves, Radio waves.
Highest energy waves
Second highest energy wave
3rd highest energy wave
Middle of spectrum 4th highest energy wave
3rd lowest energy wave
2nd lowest energy wave
lowest energy wave
A wave in which the vibration of the medium is parallel to the direction the wave travels
A wave that moves the medium in a direction perpendicular to the direction in which the wave travels
are oscillating (up and down) movements in which the surface of water rises and falls, it is an example of both a longitudinal and transverse motions.
Surface waves that travel in a backward-rotating, elliptical motion, causing both vertical and horizontal ground movement. farther down particles travel in a clockwise motion. Can travel through solid, liquid, and gas. Fourth to arrive. Dangerous.
A disturbance that travels through a medium as a longitudinal wave
a tone's experienced highness or lowness; depends on frequency (Sound)
Increasing amplitude (sound)
increases volume (sound)
