vibrations, waves, and sounds
|For a wave or vibration, the maximum displacement on either side of the equilibrium (midpoint) position.
|The distance between successive crest, troughs, or identical parts of a wave
|for a vibrating body or medium, the number of vibrations per unit time. For a wave, the number of crests that pass a particular point per unit time.
|the time in which a vibration is completed. The period of a wave equals the period of the source, and is equal to 1/frequency.
|Period of a Pendulum
|a wave in which the medium vibrates in a direction perpendicular to the direction in which the wave travels.
|a wave in which the medium vibrates in a direction parallel to the direction in which the wave travels.
|wavelength x frequency = speed V=FY (wavelength-Y)(frequency-F)
