QuestionAnswer
this is the only things waves are said to transfer energy
this is the unit used to describe the frequency of a wave Hertz
this is the part of a longitudinal wave that is CROWDED TOGETHER compression
this is the part of a longitudinal wave that is SPREAD APART rarefaction
this is what a standing wave results from interference
this is the GENERAL NAME given to all the types of waves that DO require a medium mechanical
this is the GENERAL NAME given to all the types of waves that do NOT require a medium electromagnetic
these are the types of waves which have the direction of energy moving PERPENDICULAR to the direction that the waves particles are moving transverse
these are the types of waves which have the direction of energy moving PARALLEL to the direction that the waves particles are moving longitudinal
this is the HIGH point of a transverse wave crest
this is the LOW point of a transverse wave trough
this term refers to the maximum distance a wave particle can vibrate away from the rest point amplitude
this is the position of wave particles when not vibrating rest point
this is what happens to light when it is REFRACTED bends
this is the result of a reflected sound wave echo
this is the term for any disturbance that sends energy through matter or empty space wave
this is the term which describes the matter through which waves travel medium
this is actually what the wavelength of a wave is related to distance
this results when the crest of one wave overlaps the crest of another wave constructive interference
this results when the crest of one wave overlaps the trough of another wave destructive interference
this is the 'size' of wavelength that carries the MOST ENERGY short
this is the type of frequency that creates standing waves resonant
this is a piece of glass with polished sides at angles to each other prism
certain parts of a wave are always in the rest position in this type of wave standing
in order for the speed of a wave to remain constant, when its frequency is increased, this other thing must then DECREASE wavelength
these are two specific examples of mechanical waves seismic sound
these are two specific examples of Electromagnetic waves micro light

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
