Compressional Wave Mechanical wave that causes particles in matter to move back and forth along the direction the wave travels.
Diffraction Bending of waves around an object.
Electromagnetic Wave Waves that can travel matter or empty space, includes radio waves, infrared waves, visible light waves, ultraviolet waves, X rays, and gamma rays.
Electromagnetic Spectrum Complete range of electromagnetic wave frequencies and wavelengths.
Frequency Number of wavelengths that pass a give point in one second, measured in hertz.
Infrared Waves Electromagnetic waves with wavelengths between about one thousandth of a meter and 700 billionths o a meter.
Intensity Amount of energy a wave carries past a certain area each second.
Law Of Reflection States that the angle the incoming wave makes with the normal to the reflecting surface equals the angle the reflected wave makes with the surface.
Pitch Human perception of the frequency of sound.
Refraction Change direction of a wave when it changes speed as it travels from one material into another.
Reverberation Repeated echoes of sound waves.
Transverse Waves Mechanical wave that causes particles in matter to move at right angles to the direction the wave travels.
Ultraviolet Waves Electromagnetic waves with wavelengths between about 400 billionths and 10 billionths of meter.
Wave Disturbance that moves through matter and space and carries energy.
Wavelength Distance between one point on a wave and the nearest point moving with the same speed and direction
