InfoTerm
Wave that remains in constant position/occurs when medium is moving in opposite direction of wave or in stationary medium due to interference to two waves in opposite direction
Lower threshold of human hearing in decibels
When a wave (electromagnetic, sound, or other) strikes a medium & only reflection occurs (no refraction)/only occurs when going from medium w/higher refractive index to lower index
Low point of a wave
Motion of element is parallel to direction of wave travel
Equal to the absolute value of the difference in frequency of two waves
Point where longitudinal wave has least density
Point where longitudinal wave has maximum density
Approximate decibel value of a jet taking off/considered the threshold of pain
Location on wave where displacement is maximum
Reciprocal of period/measured in Hertz
Upper limit of human hearing in Hertz
Principle of physics that allows analysis of the meeting of 2 or more waves
InfoTerm
Pulsation caused by combination of 2 sound waves of slightly different frequencies
Lower limit of human hearing in Hertz
Interference between two waves that are in-phase with each other/increases amplitude
Time it takes for wave to complete 1 full cycle
Interference between two waves that are opposite-phase with each other/results in cancellation of amplitude
Elastic wave/transverse siesmic shear waves that arrive second on seismograph/cannot travel through molten outer core
Elastic waves that can travel through a continuum/siesmic waves with highest velocity/longitudinal pressure waves that can travel through molten outer core
High point of a wave
Magnitude of maximum displacement from equilibrium position
Motion of element is perpendicular to direction of wave travel
Phenomenon that occurs when two waves meet
Location on wave where displacement is zero
List the 3 states of matter in order though which sound travels fastest to slowest
