what is a tranverse waves A transverse wave vibrating at a right angle (transversely) to the spring
What is longitudinal waves It is when the vibrating (or oscillating) it is vibrating lengthways or longitudinally
what are the high parts called crests
What are the low parts called Troughs
what is the amplitude of a wave It is the hight of a crest above the average water level or the depth of a trough below it
What is the wavelength It is the distance between two crests or trough
What is the frequency It is how many complete waves every second
If the vibrations of a wave are at right angles to the directions of the wave it is called ..... Transverse waves
if the vibration of the wave along the direction of the wave it is called a ..... Longitudinal wave
A water wave is a ... Transverse wave
A sound wave is .... Longitudinal wave
The wavelength of a wave is the distance between two successive...... Crests or trough
The frequency of a vibration is measured in .... Hz it is the number of complete Wave per a second
When a ray of light is reflected from a shiny surface ( e.g a plane mirror ) the angle of incident is equal to ..... The angle of reflection
What do we use waves for Waves are vibrations that transfer energy from place to place
What are the vibrations of a transverse waves With a transverse wave the oscillation ( vibration ) of the particles is perpendicular to the direction in which the wave travels
Wht is the right hand thumb rule ? How can it be used to help find the direction of magnetic field lines through a current carrying wire ? Point your right thumb in the direction of the current Curly your fingers The distence
