What causes a wave? Waves are caused by vibrations of a medium.
What is a medium? A medium is the material where a wave travels through.
What is a transverse wave? A type of wave where the wave particles move up and down.
What's the crest? The crest is the highest point of the wave.
What is a trough? The trough is the lowest point of the wave.
What is a longitudinal wave? A longitudinal wave is a type of wave where the wave particles move in the same direction.
What is compression? Compression is something being pushed together.
What is rarefaction? Rarefaction is the expansion of an object.
What's a mechanical wave? A mechanical wave is a type of wave that requires a medium.
What's a electromagnetic wave? An electromagnetic wave is the type that are vibrations of electric and magnetic fields.
What's an amplitude? Amplitude is the measure of how far particles are.
What is wavelength? Wavelength is the distance between one point on a wave and the next identical point.
What is frequency Frequency is the number of passing waves.
What are hertz? Hertz are the measurement of frequency.
What is wave speed? Wave speed is the speed of traveling waves.
What is force? Force is the push/pull of an object to change it's motion.
What is work? Work is the amount of force to move an object a certain distance?
What is power? Power is the amount of work done divided by the amount of time the work was done.
How much work am I doing if I use 200 Newtons for 100 meters? You're doing 20,000 Joules.
How much work am I doing if I use 30 Newtons for 55 meters? You're doing 1,650 Joules.
How much work am I doing if I use 829 Newtons for 96 meters? You're doing 79,584 Joules.
How much power am I using if I do 5500 Joules in 2 seconds? You're using 2,750 watts.
How much power am I using if I do 6000 Joules in 10 seconds? You're using 600 watts.
How much power am I using if I do 50 Joules in 5 seconds? You're using 10 watts.
When Michael was running around the track he found out he was using 500 Newtons when running for 200 meters. How much work did Michael do when running? He did 100,000 watts worth of work.
Michael's mom started walking in park paths and wanted to know how much power she was using while walking. How much power is she using if she doing 650 joules in 10 seconds She's using 65 watts of power.
Michael's dad think he's faster than Michael. He ran 200 Meters using 550 Newtons. How much work is he doing, and who is faster out of the two? He is doing 110,000 watts of work.
What is the distance between each identical wave called? It's called the wavelength.
What is the amplitude? The amplitude is the measurement for the amount of energy being carried by the wave.
What is the difference between a transverse wave and a longitudinal wave. The particles of the medium in the transverse wave move perpendicularly while the particles of the medium in the longitudinal wave move in a parallel motion.
