Diffraction bending of waves around an object
Electromagnetic Wave waves that can travel through matter or empty space
Electromagnetic Spectrum complete range of electromagnetic wave frequencies and wavelengths
Compressional Wave mechanical wave that causes particles in matter to move back and forth along the direction the waves travel
Transverse Wave mechanical wave that causes particles in matter to move at right angles to the direction the wave travels
Intensity amount of energy a wave carries past a certain area past a certain area each second
Pitch human perception of the frequency of sound
Infrared Wave electromagnetic wave with wavelengths between about one thousandth of a meter and 700 billionths of a meter
Reverberation repeated echoes of sound waves
Wavelength distance between one point on a wave and the nearest point moving with the same speed of direction
Wave disturbance that moves through matter and space and carries energy
Frequency number of wavelengths that pass a given point in one second, measuring in hertz
Refraction change in direction of a wave when it speed as it travels from one material into another
Ultraviolet Waves electromagnetic waves with wavelengths between about 400 billionths and 10 billionths of a meter
Law of Reflection states that the angle the incoming wave makes with the normal to the reflecting surface equals the angle the reflected wave makes with the surface
