Waves

For Science test

TermDefinition
Crests High Points
Troughs Low Points
Compressions Where the coils of the spring model are close together
Rarefactions Where the coils are spread apart
Transverse Wave The motion of the medium is perpendicular to the direction of the wave
Medium What the wave moves through
Amplitude The maximum distance a point on the wave is displaced, or moved from its resting position.
Longitudinal Wave The motion of the medium is parallel to the direction of the wave
Frequency (f) equal to 1 divided by the period: f=1/T. Frequency is measured in hertz (Hz), where 1 Hz= 1 cycle/sec.
Sound Waves Longitudinal waves that can travel through air.
Power The amount of energy it transmits each second.
Wave Speed The speed of a wave is the distance a wave pulse travels per second
Wavelength Equal to the distance a point on the wave is displaced from its resting position.
