Waves

Science Test

TermDefinition
the change in direction of a wave going from one medium to another refraction
type of wave that has rarefactions compressional wave
the distance between two crests of a transverse wave wavelength
more energy in a wave results in a greater amplitude
can travel through space without a medium electromagnetic wave
carries energy and not matter wave
bending of waves around a barrier diffraction
number of wavelengths that pass a certain point in one second frequency
the ability of two waves to combine and form a new wave when they overlap interference
use matter to transfer energy mechanical waves
when a wave strikes a surface or object and bounces off reflection
matter in the medium moves up, down, left, or right transverse wave
matter in the medium moves forward and backward compressional wave
