DefinitionTerm
How far a wave travels in a given amount of time
Waves that move the medium at right angles to the direction in which the waves travel
Interaction that occurs when waves meet
When a wave hits a surface and bounces back
The parts of a longitudinal wave that are spread apart
The high part of a transverse wave
Waves that move the medium parallel to the direction in which the waves travel
When a wave moves around a barrier or through an opening and then bends and spreads out
Type of interference that produces a wave with a larger amplitude
Points of zero amplitude on a standing wave
A repeated back-and-forth or up-and-down motion
The bending of waves due to a change in speed
A disturbance that transfers energy from place to place
A wave that appears to stand in one place, even though it is really two waves interfering as they pass through each other
DefinitionTerm
Waves that do not require a medium through which to travel
Points of maximum amplitude on a standing wave
The distance from crest to crest or from trough to trough
Are surface waves longitudinal, transverse, or both?
Type of interference that produces a wave with a smaller amplitude
Waves that require a medium through which to travel
The material through which a wave travels
Unit that frequency is measured in (write out the full word)
The low part of a transverse wave
The ability to do work
An increase in the amplitude of a vibration that occurs when external vibrations match an object's natural frequency
The parts of a longitudinal wave that are close together
The distance from rest position to crest or trough
The number of complete waves that pass a point in a certain amount of time
