Wave A wave is a disturbance that moves through matter or space.
Transverse waves A transverse wave causes particles in matter to move back and forth at right angles to the direction in which the wave travels.
Congressional wave A compressional wave causes particles in matter to move back and forth in the same direction in which the wave travels.
Wavelength The distance between one point on a wave and the nearest point moving with the same speed and direction is the wavelength.
Frequency The frequency of a wave is the number of wave lengths that pass by a point each second.
Law of reflecton According to law of fraction the angles that the incoming wave make the normal equals the angle that the outgoing wave makes with the normal.
Refraction Refraction is the change in direction of a wave when it changes speed as it travels from one material to another.
Diffraction waves can change direction which is the bending of waves around an object.
opaque allowing no light to pass through.
translucent allowing light, but not detailed images, to pass through; semitransparent.
transparent allowing light to pass through so that objects behind can be distinctly seen.
