Compressional Wave mechanical wave that causes particles in matter to move back and forth along the direction the wave travels
law of reflection states that the angle the incoming wave makes with the normal to reflecting surface equals
pitch The quality of a sound governed by the rate of vibrations producing it; the degree of highness or lowness of a tone.
refraction Change in direction of propagation of any wave as a result of its traveling at different speeds at different points along the wave front.
frequency The rate at which something occurs or is repeated over a particular period of time or in a given sample.
intensity The quality of being intense: "the pain grew in intensity".
wave A long body of water curling into an arched form and breaking on the shore.
wavelength The distance between successive crests of a wave, esp. points in a sound wave or electromagnetic wave.
ultraviolet wave (Ultraviolet waves) Ultraviolet (UV) light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength shorter than that of visible light
electromagnetic spectrum Of or relating to the interrelation of electric currents or fields and magnetic fields.
electromagnetic waves (electromagnetic wave) electromagnetic radiation: radiation consisting of waves of energy associated with electric and magnetic fields.
diffraction The process by which a beam of light or other system of waves is spread out as a result of passing through a narrow aperture.
reverberation echo: the repetition of a sound resulting from reflection of the sound waves; "she could hear echoes of her own footsteps".
transverse waves A wave vibrating at right angles to the direction of its propagation.
infrared waves (infrared wave) A wave with a frequency between 300 GHz and 400 THz; usually used for short-range communications.
