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 Spectrum complete range of electromagnetic wave frequencies and wavelengths .
Electromagnetic Waves waves than can travel matter or empty space, includes radio waves,infrared waves, visible light waves, ultraviolet waves, X ray, and gramma rays.
frequency Number of wavelenghts that pass a given point in one second, measured in hertz (Hz)
infrared waves Electromagnetic waves with wavelengths between about one thousandth of a meter 700 billionths of a meter.
intensity amount of energy a wave carries past a certain area each second.
Law of reflection states that the total momentum of objects that collide with each other is the same before and after the collition.
Pitch human precipitation of frequency of sound .
refraction change in direction of a wave when it changes speed as it travels from one material to another.
reverberation repeated echoes of sound of waves
transerse wave Mechanical wave that causes particles in matter to moves at right angles to the direction the wave travels .
ultraviolet waves electromagnetic waves with wavelenghs between about 400 billionths and 10 billionths of a meter
wave disturbance that moves through matter and space and carries energy.
