Vocab and more!

In your own words what is the definition of power? Power is the amount of energy that is used in a time period and its unit is in (watts) the label is J for (joules)
What is the definition of force in your own words? Force is the change in motion of an object. The label for force is (joules) and the unit is a (newton).
What is the definition of work in your own words? Work is using force or pressure to move an object a distance, You use work to move a box. The unit is (newton), The label is (joules).
In your own words what's the definition of a wave? A wave is a body that transfers energy throughout a medium or without one it transfers energy from place to place.
What is the definition of a medium in your own words? A medium is a substance that helps a wave transfer energy from one place to another location specifically through waves.
In your own definition describe a crest? A crest is a point on a wave where the placement of the medium is at its maximum point.
What is the definition of a trough? A trough is a point on a wave where the placement of the medium is at its minimum point.
In your own words what is the definition of a longitudinal wave? A longitudinal wave is a wave that has particles of the medium that vibrate in the direction of a wave.
What do you think compression is? Compression is a point in a wave where the wave particles and vibrations are compact together.
What is the definition of rarefraction? Rarefraction is a point in a wave where the particles are more spread out and they aren't close together.
Whats the definition of a transverse wave? A transverse wave is s wave that is perpendicular to the direction of an energy transfer
Whats a mechanical wave? A mechanical wave is that moves over long distances it's the movement of a medium. This waves involves the use or a medium.
What are electromagnetic waves? Electromagnetic waves are waves that can travel through empty space and this wave does not need a medium.
Describe amplitude with the definition in your own words? Amplitude is the maximum extend of vibrations or the maximum points at which a certain wave can extend too,
What is wavelength? Describe using the definition! Wavelength is the distance between the crest and the trough in a wave.
What's the definition of frequency? Frequency is the rate or data at which something had occurred over a specific period of time.
What is the definition of Hertz (HZ) ? Hertz or (HZ) is the unit we use to measure frequency all over the world.
What's the definition of wave speed? Wave speed is the speed at which a wave travels from place to place.
Johhy can mow his lawn in 45 minutes his lawn is 32 feet long whats his total work? MUST HAVE CORRECT LABEL! 1,440J or (joules)
Callies box is 1000 newtons it takes her 20 minutes to move the box 8 feet what is her total power? MUST HAVE CORRECT LABEL! 2,500(newtons
The crest has a height of 15 feet and the trough is 5 feet what is the wavelength? MUST HAVE CORRECT LABEL! 10feet
Using force and distance how do you calculate work? forcexdistance
Since electromagnetic waves do not require a medium how does the wave travel? Through space
Since a crest is the maximum point of a wave what is the trough? The minimum point of a wave
Since compression is when waves are compact together what does rarefaction do to the waves? Rarefraction spreads the waves farther apart
Since work is calculated using distance and force what is the problems label? (J) or joules
