QuestionAnswer
distance between corresponding points on adjacent waves wavelength
wave that occurs when two waves of equal wavelength, frequency and amplitude meet and interfere standing wave
point of lowest displacement from the equilibrium position on a transverse wave trough
occurs when a wave hits a boundary and then travels back in the direction from which it came reflection
requires a medium in order to travel mechanical wave
point of highest displacement from the equilibrium position on a transverse wave crest
height of a wave amplitude
number of waves that pass a given point in a certain amount of time, usually one second frequency
time required for one wavelength to pass through a given point period
caused by a single disturbance in a medium pulse wave
caused by a disturbance in a medium that occurs at regular intervals periodic wave
wave in which the medium and the wave move perpendicular to one another transverse wave
wave in which the medium and the wave move parallel to one another longitudinal wave
