Crests high points of a wave
Trough low points of a wave
Rarefaction less dense region of the wave
Amplitude the height of the wave
Frequency the number of wavelengths that pass a fixed point each second
Period the amount of time it takes one wavelength to pass a point
Wave Speed wave speed=frequency(HZ) * wavelength(m) v=f*/\
