TermDefinition
Interference Interaction between waves that meet
antinode A point of maximum amplitude on a standing wave
Resonance The increase in the amplitude of a vibration that occurs when external vibrations match an object's natural frequency
Reflection The bouncing back of a wave when it hits a surface through which it cannot pass
Refraction Bending of a wave as it enters a new medium at an angle
Diffraction The bending or spreading of waves as they move around a barrier or pass through an opening
Standing waves A wave that appears to stand in one place, even though it is really two waves interfering as they pass through each other
Constructive interference The interference that occurs when two waves combine to make a wave with a larger amplitude
Destructive interference The interference that occurs when two waves combine to make a wave with a smaller amplitude
Node A point of zero amplitude on a standing wave
