science test 1 waves

first q science waves

highest and lowest points of a transverse wave crest and troughs
the shortest distance between any two points in a wave wavelength
is the maximum displacement from the middle line to the bottom/trough of a wave amplitude
the time taken for one point on a wave to complete one oscaillation period (t)
the number of complete waves produced per second frequency (f)
in a time of one period, a crest on a transverse rope wave will have moved a distance of one wavelength wave speed (λ)
the messurment used for frequency hertz
the direction of wave motion is parrallel to the direction of vibration longitutal waves
the direction of wave motion is perpendicular to the direction of vibration transverse
