gallo 25 vocab

a oscillation, or repeating back and forth motion, about an equillibrium position vibration
a disturbance that repeats regularly in space and time and that is transmitted progessively from one place to the next with no actual transport of matter. wave
the time required for a pendulum to make one to and from swing. in general, the time required to complete a sinle cycle. period
the back and forth motion vibratory motion of a swinging pendulum simple harmonic motion
a curve whose shape represents the crests and troughs of a wave, as traced out by a swinging pendulum that drops a trail of sand over a moving conveyor belt. sine curve
one of the places in a wave where the wave is highest or the disturbance is greatest. crest
one of the places in a wave where the wave is the lowest, or the disturbance is greatest, in the opposite direction from a crest. trough
the distance from the midpoint to the maximum (crest) of a wave or, equivalently, from the midpoint to the minimum (trough). amplitude
the distance from the top of the crest of a wave to the top of the following crest, or equivalently, the distance between successive identical parts of the wave. wavelength
the number of events (cycles, vibrations, oscilliations, or any repeated event) per time; measured in hertz (or events per time.) inverse period. frequency
the SI unit of frequency. one hertz is one cycle per second hertz
a wave with the vibration at right angles to the direction the wave is traveling. transverse wave
a wave in which the vibration is in the same direction as that in which the wave is traveling, rather than at right angles to it. longitudinal wave
a pattern formed by the pverlapping of two or more waves that arrive in a region at the same time. interference pattern
