Work,Power,and Waves

Transverse Waves Particles that travel perpendicularly to the direction the wave travels
Mechanical Waves Waves that require a medium
Electromagnetic waves Waves that are not disturbances in physical mediums
Amplitude A measure of how far particles in the medium move from the rest position
Wavelength The disturbance from one point on a wave to the next identical point on the wave
Frequency The number of waves that pass a point in a given amount of time
Hertz SI unit of Frequency
Wave speed The speed that waves travel
Rarefaction Region in longitudinal waves where the particles and farthest apart
Force A push or pull exerting on an object in order to change the motion of an object measured in waves
Work The use of force to move and object some distance.
Calculation for work W=FxD
Power The rate at which work is done or converted
Calculation for power P=W/T
Wave A distance that transfers energy
Medium A solid,liquid,or gas through which a wave can travel
Crest The points where the waves are the highest
Trough The point where the wave are at the lowest point
Longitudinal wave Particles that move back and forth in the same direction that the wave travels
Compression Region in Longitudinal wave where the particles are closest together
Calculation for wavelength WL=WS/F
For Mechanical waves like sound waves when you talk,what would be the Medium Air particles
How are Electromagnetic waves able to travel The waves Vibrate on the electrical/magnetic field it creates
What are example(s) of Mechanical waves Sound waves,Water waves,seismic waves
what are examples of Electromagnetical waves microwaves,radio waves,inferred light,UV radiation,visible light
Which medium allows waves to travel through it the fastest Solid(s)
