Crest The highest point on a transverse wave
Wavelength The distance from crest to crest or trough to trough
Amplitude The height from the resting point to the crest or trough
Trough The lowest point on a transverse wave
High frequency means bigger/short wavelength short
Frequency Number of waves per second
