      • Displacement of particles in medium perpendicular to direction wave is travelling
    • Longitudinal waves
      • Displacement of particles in medium parallel to direction wave is travelling
  • Features of waves
    • Amplitude (A)
      • Maximum displacement of a particle in a wave from equilibrium position
      • Measured in Metres (m)
    • Frequency (f)
      • Number…
