what wave moves up and down transverse wave
what wave moves side to side longitudinal wave
the highest point of a transverse wave is called... crest
the lowest point of a transverse wave is called... trough
how is the amplitude measured in a transverse wave from the origin (or mid-point) to the crest or origin to the trough
what is the frequency the number of waves produced by a source each second
The point where particles push together is called... compression
The point where particles spread apart is called rarefraction
how is the frequency measured? (longitudinal wave) compression to compression or rarefraction to rarefraction
how is frequency measured? (transverse wave) crest to crest or trough to trough
what do transverse waves carry? light energy
what do longitudinal waves carry? sound energy
