Waves- Chapter 10

Mrs. Brandt's 8th grade Science

a wave strikes an object and bounces off reflection
a repeating disturbance that transfers energy through matter or space wave
ability of an object to vibrate by absorbing energy at its natural frequency resonance
a wave that needs a medium to move through mechanical wave
the bending of a wave caused by a change in speed at it moves from one medium into another and through another refraction
a wave that moves up and down at right angles to the direction the wave travels transverse wave
bending of a wave around a barrier diffraction
wave that moves matter in a medium back and forth in the same direction the wave travels compressional wave
material through which a wave moves and transfers energy medium
a special type of wave pattern formed when waves of equal wavelength and amplitude travel in opposite directions continuously interferring with each other standing waves
distance between one point in a wave and the nearest point just like it on the next wave wavelength
two or more overlapping waves that have combined while moving through each other to form a new wave interference
the measure of how many wavelengths pass a fixed point each second frequency
the measure of how much energy a wave carries amplitude
