A disturbance in matter that carries energy from one place to another is called a _______.
A substance through which signals can travel (e.g. air for sound waves).
A wave that needs a medium to travel through.
A wave that vibrates at right angles to the line of rest or equilbrium position.
A wave that vibrates parallel to the line of rest or equilibrium position.
A wave that twists around its line of rest or equilbrium position.
The transmission of a single wave.
A wave that has pulses that occur at regular intervals.
a series of changes produced in sequence that recur periodically.
frequency is measured in_______
The energy level or horizontal row of elements in the periodic table
The Universal Wave Equation
An equation that says the velocity of a wave is equal to the product of its frequency and wavelength.
The maximum displacement from the Equilibrium Position
distance between two consecutive crests which are in phase with one another
A force that pushes on or squeezes a material.
a part in a longitudinal wave where the particles are spread apart
a wave strikes a boundary and bounces back
The reflection that occurs when a wave moves from one medium to another.
Two or more waves acting simultaneously on the same particles of a medium, resulting in a new displacement.
Bright bands are
Dark bands are
The resultant of two wave trains of the same wavelength, frequency, and amplitude travelling in opposite directions through the same medium.
A point in a standing wave at which negative interference results in a constant amplitude of zero.
antinode or loop
Areas of double crests or double troughs that occur in a standing wave.
