Transverse waves wave that transfers through a medium and causes the medium to vibrate at right angles
Longitudinal waves wave that transfers through a medium and causes medium to vibrate only in the direction parallel to the wave’s motion and transfers energy through that medium
Longitudinal wave in an earthquakes moves as a series of compression and rarefactions
Amplitude the amount of energy carried by a wave and the maximum displacement of a medium from the rest position
Reflection occurs when a wave bounces off a surface that it cannot pass through, like a racquetball hitting a wall
Refraction the bending of a wave as it enters a new medium at an oblique angle, must travel at a different speed within the two media
Sound travels fastest through cast iron
Doppler Effect a change in sound frequency caused by the motion of the sound source (like a firetruck as it goes past you)
Pitch sound source
Electromagnetic waves transverse wave consisting of changing electric and changing magnetic fields, causes variation in wavelength and frequency
Formula to find frequency speed of wavelength and the speed of the wave
