waves, work, power

TermDefinition
definition Medium (vocab) material solid, liquid or gas through which a wave can travel
definition Transverse Wave (vocab) a wave in which the particles of the medium move perpendicular to the direction the wave is traveling
definition Crest (vocab) the highest point in the wave
definition Trough (vocab) the lowest point in the wave
definition Longitudinal Wave (vocab) a wave in which the particles of a medium vibrate parallel to the direction of a wave motion
definition Compression (vocab) where by particles are pushed together
definition Rarefaction (vocab) where by particles are spread apart
definition Mechanical Waves (vocab) waves that require a medium can travel through more than one medium
definition Electromagnetic Waves (vocab) waves that travel without a medium
definition Amplitude (vocab) as waves pass through particles in the medium vibrate up, down and back-n-forth
definition Wavelength (vocab) the amplitude of a wave describes the amount of the up, down and side-to-side displacement
definition Frequency (vocab) the number of waves that pass a point in a given amount of time
definition Hertz (vocab) One wave length per second
definition Wave Speed (vocab) The speed at which waves travel
definition Force (vocab) energy used to move an object a certain distance, measured in Newtons
definition Work (vocab) push or pull of an object in order to change the motion
definition Power (vocab) the rate at which work is done, measured in watts
what is the difference between compression and rarefaction? compression is where particles are pushed together while rarefaction is when particles are spread apart.
what is the difference between Wave speed and Hertz? Hertz is one wave length per second while wave speed is the speed at which waves travel.
what is the difference work and power? work is a push or pull of an object in order to change the motion while power is the rate at which work is done, measured in watts.
what is the difference between a crest and trough? Crest is the highest point in the wave while the trough is the lowest point in the wave.
what is the difference between electromagnetic waves and force? electromagnetic waves travel without an medium with force uses energy used to move an object a certain distance, measured in Newtons
