QuestionAnswer
the complet range of electromagnetic wave frequencies and wavelengths Electomagnetic Spectrum
heat energy is tansmitted through this wave infrared waves
causes particals in matter to move back and forth along the same direction in which the wave travels compressional wave
the distance between one crest or compressional on a wave and the next one moving with the same speed and direction wavelength
the angle that the incoming wave makes with the normal equals the angle that the outgoing wave makes with the normal law of reflection
the amount of energy that a wave carries past by a point in a certain amount of time intensity
the human perception of the frequency of sound pitch
the number of wavelengths that pass by a point in a certain amount of time frequency
electromagnetic wave that cn cause damage to the eye and skin ultaviolet waves
a disturbance that carries energy through matter or space wave
cause particals in matter to move back and forth at right angles to the direction in which the wave travels transverse wave
waves that can travel through matter or empty space electomagnetic wave
the change in direction of a wave when it travels from one material to another refraction
can travel through matter or empty space electomagnetic wave
contains high points called crests transverse wave
contains rarefractons compressional wave
contains electic and magnetic parts electomagnetic wave
detected by ear compressional wave
detected by eye electomagnetic wave
what type of wave can travel only through matter mechanical wave
what characteristics is measured in meters wave length
