Science chapter 9

A repeating disturbance that transfers energy as it travels through matter or space Waves
A wave that can only travel through matter. Ex.. Sound waves. It requires medium. Mechanical Waves
Waves created by vibrating electric charges. Does not require medium. Ex.. Light waves Electromagnetic wave
A wave in which particles of the medium move in a direction perpendicular Transverse waves
Denser region of a longitude wave. Ex.. Sound waves Compression waves
What Is the transfer of energy Waves
Light 💡 is a... Transverse wave
The less dense region of a longitude wave Rarefraction
When a wave strikes an object and bounces off of it Reflection
The bending of a wave caused by a change in its speed as it moves from one medium to another. Refraction
When two or more waves over lap combine to form new wave Interference
When a object causes a wave to change direction and bend around it Diffraction
What are three things that travel in waves Energy ⚡, light 💡 and sound 🔊
3 properties of waves Distance Frequency Amplitude
X rays have high or low frequency High
Is the distance between one point on a wave and the nearest point Wave length
What causes waves on the ocean Wind blows
What are earth quake waves Seismic waves
The number of wave 🌊 lengths that pass a fixed point each sec Frequency
Height of waves Amplitude
What wave travels by squeezing and spreading Sound waves
What is it called when a wave bounces back and forth and comes back Reflection
Uses sound waves Sonar
Is matter through which a wave travels Medium
Is a wave in which particles of the medium move in a direction parallel to the direction that waves move Longitude waves
A sound 🔊 wave is produced by a..... Vibrating object
Behavior of a wave of reaching end of medium Boundary behavior
What radiation have the most energy ⚡ Gamma rays
The amount of time it takes one wave length to pass a point Period
Frequency of a wave....... The wavelength of the wave....... Increases..... Decreases
Waves are created by.. Vibration and carried energy ⚡
