medium solid, liquid, or gas.
transverse wave particals move perpindicular.
crest upward vibrations of a transverse wave.
electromagnetic waves disturbances in a physical medium.
amplitude how far particals move .
wave speed depends on mediums.
wavelength distance from a point to another on a wave.
frequency number of waves .
hertzz is a unit of frequencys.
power the amount of work done per unit of time. The unit for power, joules/second, is the watt. Power= work/time work = joules time =seconds.
trough downward vibration of a transverse wave.
longitudinal wave particles moving back and forth.
compression short particles.
rarrefaction long particles.
mechanical waves waves that required a medium are called mechanical waves.
force a push or pull on an object, force is measured by newtons.
work use of force to move an object distant, work i measured in joules.
If the distance between the crest and the trough of a wave are increased, would the wave frequency. Increase or Decrease? Increase.
if a noisy toy is placed inside a airtight glass container no, because there is no air to transmit the sound.
