What is a wave? The vibrations of a medium
What is a medium? the material which a wave can travel through
What is a transverse wave? when particles move perpendicularly to the direction the wave travels
What is a crest? the point where the wave is highest
What is a trough? the point where the wave is lowest
What is a longitudinal wave? when particles move in the same directions as the wave travels
What is a compression? when an item compresses together
What is a rarefaction? when an item is spread apart
What are mechanical waves? waves that require a medium
What are electromagnetic waves? vibrations of electric and magnetic fields
What is amplitude? the measure of how far particles in the medium move
What is a wavelength? distance from any point on a wave to the next identical point
What is the definition of frequency? number of waves that pass a point in a given amount of time
What is wave speed? the speed waves travel
What is the equation for wave speed? speed =distance/time
What is force? push or pull exerted on an object
What is the unit for force? newton's
What is work? use of force to move something
