an amount of time
Simple Harmonic Motion
periodic motion in which the restoring force is proportional to the displacement
reach a high point
the lowest point of a wave
the maximum displacement of a periodic wave
the distance (measured in the direction of propagation) between two points in the same phase in consecutive cycles of a wave
the number of occurrences of a wave within a given time period (usually 1 second)
the unit of frequency
a wave that moves the medium in a direction perpendicular to the direction in which the wave travels
a wave in which the vibration of the medium is parallel to the direction the wave travels
The interference that occurs when two waves combine to make a wave with a larger amplitude.

the point of minimum displacement in a periodic system
the point of maximum displacement in a periodic system
how high or low a sound is
the part of a longitudinal wave where the particles of the medium are close together
the least dense region of a compressional wave
the vibration of an object that is made to vibrate by another vibrating object
