waves ]]]]

eight grade only ;]

a phenomeno that occurs when two objects naturally vibrate at the same frequency; the sound produced by one object causes that other object to vibrate resonace
the bending of a wave as the wave passes between two substances in which the speed of the wave differs refraction
a change in the direction of a wave when the wave finds an obstacle or an edge, such as an opening diffraction
the distance from any point on a wave to an identical point on the next wave wave length
the number of waves produced in a given amount of time frequency
a wave in which the particles of the medium vibrate parallel to the direction of the wave in motion longitudinal wave
a physical environment in which a phenomena occurs medium
a pattern of vibration that stimulates a wave that is standing standing wave
the combination of two or more waves that results in a single wave interference
the bouncing back of a ray of light, sound, or heat when the ray hits a surface that it does not go through reflection
the speed at which a wave travels through a medium wave speed
the maxium distance that the particles of a wave's medium vibrate from their rest position amplitude
a wave in which the particles of the medium move perpendiculary to the direction the wave is traveling transverse wave
a periodic disturbance in as a solid, liquid, or gas as energy is transmitted through a medium wave
