Wave A disturbance the moves through matter or space.
Transverse Wave Causes particles in matter to move back and forth at right angles to the direction in which the wave travels.
Compressional Wave Causes particles in matter to move back and forth along the same direction in which the wave travels.
Wavelength The distance between one point of the wave to the nearest point of the wave.
Frequency Is the number of wavelengths that pass by a point each second.
Law of Reflection Specular reflection the angle at which the wave is incident on the surface equals the angle at which it is reflected.
Refraction The change in direction of a wave when it changes speed as it travels from one material into another.
Diffraction Bending of waves around an object
Opaque An object that allows no light to pass trough it.
Transparent An object allows all light to pass threw it.
Translucent An object that allows some light to pass trough it.
Reflect Bounce off.
Absorbs Take light in.
Transmit Go threw it.
Loudness It relates through amplitude because you need more energy to make a louder sound.
Pitch It relates to frequency because frequency is higher pitch.
Echolocation Some Animals used this method to navigate and hunt.
