Acceleration
Change of velocity per second
1 of 7
Alpha Radiation
Alpha particles each composed of two protons and two neutrons emitted by an unstable nuclues
2 of 7
Amplitude
The height of a wave crest or trough of a transverse wave from the rest position. Of oscillating motion is the maximum distance moved by an oscillating object from the equilibrium position.
3 of 7
Angle of Incidence
angle between the incident ray and normal line
4 of 7
Angle of reflection
angle between the reflected ray and the normal line
5 of 7
Beta Radiation
a high speed electron created in and emitted from an unstable nucleus
6 of 7
Blue Shift
decrease in the wavelength of EM waves emitted by by a star or galaxy due to it's movement towards us. The faster the speed of the star the greaterthe blue-shift.
