Must Know definition !

Amplitude unit label for amplitude max deflection (biggest x value) meters
periodic motion period any motion that repeats so it has a definite period. time for on event
compression closer part of longitude
unit label for period unit label for frequency (T) (F)
frequency Equation for period to frequency # events /seconds Hz (T= 1/f) (T=1/f)
rarefaction more spread out part of a longitude
crest trough top of transverse bottom of transverse
wavelength distance between
variables that will change the period of a pendulum a. length of string b. gravity c. release point d. whether you push it or drop it
transverse particle motion is ______to a wave motion longitudinal particle motion is _____to wave motion.
a low point of a wave is called a trough
a crest is the ______of a wave top
when the particles of the medium move back and forth along the direction of the wave motion, the wave is a longitudinal wave
when the particles of a medium are far apart , that part of the wave is called a wave length
compression is part of the medium where particles are___ closer together
a wave in which the particles of the medium are at right angles to the direction in which the wave travels is called a ____ transverse wave
