WAVES

COVERT - Mechanical and Electromagnetic

TermDefinition
AMPLITUDE OF A COMPRESSIONAL WAVE DEPENDS ON DENSITY OF MATERIAL
LIGHT WAVES CHANGE DIRECTION AS A RESULT OF REFRACTION
PART OF THE EAR THAT AMPLIFIES SOUND VIBRATIONS MIDDLE EAR
DETECTS OBJECTS BY BOUNCING SOUNDS OFF OF THEM ECHOLOCATION
MEASURED IN DECIBELS (db) INTENSITY
DETERMINED BY INTENSITY OF LIGHT WAVES BRIGHTNESS OF LIGHT
DISTANCE FROM COMPRESSION TO BEGINNING OF NEXT COMPRESSION WAVELENGTH
MORE ENERGY COMPRESSED THEN THE GREATER IT'S... AMPLITUDE
THE ANGLE THAT THE INCOMING WAVE MAKES WITH THE NORMAL = THE ANGLE THAT THE OUTGOING WAVE MAKES WITH THE NORMAL LAW OF REFLECTION
IF AN ANGLE MOVES SLIGHTLY IN ONE DIRECTION FROM 90 DEGREES OF THE NORMAL THEN... THE OTHER SIDE WILL MOVE THE SAME AMOUNT IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION
LIGHT TRAVELS FASTEST IN A VACUUM OR EMPTY SPACE
THE NORMAL IS = TO 90 DEGREES
AS THE FREQUENCY OF SOUND GETS HIGHER SO DOES PITCH
TRANSPARENT LAYER OF THE EYE CORNEA
FLEXIBLE PART OF THE EYE LENS
WAVES ARE FOCUSED IN THE EYE ON THE RETINA
THESE DETECT LIGHT AND SEND SIGNALS FROM THE OPTIC NERVE TO THE BRAIN ABOUT COLORS RED/GRN/YELLOW/BLUE ROD AND CONES
SOUND COLLECTOR OUTER EAR
SOUND AMPLIFYER MIDDLE EAR
SOUND INTERPRETER INNER EAR
WAVES USED TO BOUNCE OFF AN OBJECT TO LOCATE THEM ECHOLOCATION
ALL COLORS __________ BY A MEDIUM APPEAR BLACK ABSORBED
ALL COLORS _________ BY A MEDIUM APPEAR WHITE REFLECTED
CHANGE IN DIRECTION OF A WAVE AS IT TRAVELS FROM ONE MEDIUM (AIR) INTO ANOTHER (WATER) REFRACTION
BENDING OF WAVES AROUND AN OBJECT (AS IF GOING THROUGH A SLOT OR APERTURE) DIFFRACTION
HUMAN PERCEPTION OF THE FREQUENCY OF SOUND PITCH
REPEATED ECHOES (MR DJ) REVERBERATION
RADIATION THERMAL WAVES EMITTED BY ALL WARM BODIES INFRARED WAVES
BOTH ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC IN NATURE LIGHT WAVES
NUMBER # OF WAVES PASSING A POINT IN ONE SECOND MEASURED IN HERTZ (hz) FREQUENCY
Color Absorbed Black
Color Reflected White
the interference of two or more waves of equal frequency producing a single amplitude equal to the sum of the amplitudes of the individual waves. Constructive Interference
two waves of equal frequency and opposite phase, resulting in their cancellation Destructive Interference
a disturbance or vibration carrying energy while moving through a medium Wave
