waves in physics

v= f x lamda (upside down y) wave speed
bottom of a wave trough
the distance between identical points on 2 adjacent waves wavelength
the distance between the top (or bottom) to the resting position on a wave amplitude
the material that a mechanical wave passes through medium
wave that can travel through a vacuum (do not need a medium) electromagnetic
interference from "in sync" waves that add up constructive
wave hitting a surface and bouncing back into medium reflection
the time it takes to complete a wave cycle (T) period
the number of cycles completed in a certain period of time (f) frequency
T = 1/f formula for period
interference from "out of sync" waves that cancel each other out destructive
EM band with longest wavelength and lowest frequency radio waves
EM band with shortest wavelength and highest frequency gamma rays
f = 1/T formula for frequency
speed of light 3.0 x 10^8 m/s
speed of sound 3.4 x 10^2 m/s
