Science Test

QuestionAnswer
what is the material through which mechanical waves travel a medium
what is carried from particle to particle in a water wave energy
what are the lowest points on a transverse wave troughs
what determines the pitch of a sound wave frequency
what is the distance between wave compressions 1 Hz
what occurs when a wave strikes an object or surface and bounces off reflection
what is the name for a change in the direction of a wave when it passes from one medium to another diffraction
what type of wave is a sound wave compressional
what color light has the shortest wavelength and largest frequency blue
what do waves carry as they move energy
what kind of wave does not need a medium through which to travel light
what happens as a sound waves energy decreases amplitude decreases
what unit is used to measure frequencies hertz
what properties of a light wave determine its color wavelength
when two waves overlap and interfere constructively, what does the resulting wave have a greater amplitude
what happens when light travels from air into glass it slows down
what behavior of light lets you see a sharp, clear image of yourself reflection
why can't you see a clear image of yourself if the waters surface is rough the light scatters in many different directions
matter moves at right angles to direction wave travels transverse
matter moves in same direction as wave travels compressional
