Science exam waves

Waves and Light

Wave movement that transfers energy through matter or space
medium matter that moves to carry the energy, some kinds of waves do not need a medium, does not travel with the wave
equilibrium position (or rest position) where the medum would be if it were still
crest highest point of a wave
trough lowest point of a wave
wavelength distance from one crest to next or from one trough to the next
amplitude height of a wave crest or the depth of a trough from the rest position
Frequency number of times it repeats in a given period of time
Frequency is measured in _______ Hertz Hz
Heartz/Hz means ________ cycles per socond
when a wavelength has a higher frequency, it has a ____________ wavelength shorter
waves with greater amplitude are transferring ________energy more
waves with _____________ frequency are transferring more energy higher
