Ch 14 vocab.

a periodic disturbance in a solid liquid, gas as energy is transmitted through a measurement. Wave
a physical environment in which pnemonea occur. Medium
a wave that requires a medium through which to travel. Mechanical Wave
a wave that consists of oscillating electric and magnetic fields of which radiate outward at the speed of light. Electromagnetic Wave
a wave in which the particles of the medium move perpendicular to the direction the wave is traveling. Transverse Wave
a wave in which the particles of the median vibrate parallel to the direction of the wave motion. Longitudinal Wave
The highest point of a wave. Crest
The lowest point of a wave. Trough
the maximum distance that the particles of a waves medium vibrate from their rest position. Amplitude
the distance from any point on a wave to an identical point on the next wave. Wave Length
the time that it takes a complete cycle or wave oscillation to occur. Period
the number of wavelengths that pass a point in a given time interval. Frequency
occurs for light and other types of waves. Doppler Effect
is simply the bouncing back of a wave when it meets a surface or boundary. Reflection
this bending of waves as they pass an edge. Diffraction
when several waves are in the same location the waves combine to produce a single new wave that is different from the original. Interference
a wave whose amplitude is the sum of the amplitudes of the two individual waves. Destructive Interference
can form when a wave is reflected at the boundary of a medium. Standing Waves
