- for any wave, its amplitude is the maximum displacement of a point on the wave from its undisturbed position, such as the height of the wave crest (or the depth of the wave trough) from the position at rest

- for any wave, its frequency is the number of waves passing a point per second

- the period of a wave = 1 / frequency

- for any wave, its wavelength is the distance from a point on the wave to the equivalent point on the next wave (e.g. from one wave trough to the next wave trough)

- speed of a wave is:

speed = frequency x wavelength
