QuestionAnswer
vibration about an equilibrium position in which a restoring force is proportional to the displacement from equilibrium simple harmonic motion
the maximum displacement from equilibrium amplitude
the time that it takes a complete cycle to occur period
the number of cycles or vibrations per unit of time frequency
a physical environment through which a disturbance can travel medium
a wave that requires a medium through which to travel mechanical wave
a wave whose particles vibrate perpendicularly to the direction the wave is traveling transverse wave
the highest point above the equilibrium position crest
the lowest point below the equilibrium position trough
the distance between two adjacent similar points of a wave, such as from crest to crest or from trough to trough wavelength
a wave whose particles vibrate parallel to the direction the wave is traveling longitudinal wave
a superposition of two or more waves in which individual displacements on the same side of the equilibrium position are added together to form the resultant wave constructive interference
a superposition of two or more waves in which individual displacements on opposite sides of the equilibrium position are added together to form the resultant wave destructive interference
a wave pattern that results when two waves of the same frequency, wavelength, and amplitude travel in opposite directions and interfere standing wave
a point in a standing wave that maintains zero displacement node
a point in a standing wave halfway between two nodes, at which the largest displacement occurs antinode
