Waves...
...carry energy from one place to another
1 of 9
Transverse waves have a...
...perpendicular movement. Eg: light waves, ultraviolet
2 of 9
Longitudinal waves have a...
...parallel movement. Eg: sound waves, ultrasound
3 of 9
Amplitude is...
... The height of the wave(A) (M)
4 of 9
Wavelength...
...the distance from one point on a wave to another identicle point on the wave.
5 of 9
Frequency is...
...the number of waves that pass a point in one second
6 of 9
Reflection is...
...the bouncing of a wave off a surface
7 of 9
Refraction is...
...bending of a wave as it enters a new material. Refraction is caused by a change in speed.
8 of 9
Diffraction...
...the spreading out of a wave as it passes through narrow opening. Diffraction depends on the size of the gap through which the waves are passing.
