what is a wave? A wave can be described as a disturbance that travels through a medium from one location to another location.
what are some examples of waves? Water ripples, tidal waves or visible light are good examples of waves
The crest of a wave is? it is the point at which the displacement of water from its normal level is highest
The trough of a wave is? it is the point at which displacement of water from its normal level is lowest
what is wavelength? The wavelength is defined as the distance between two successive particles which are at the same phase
what is diffraction? it is the bending of waves as they pass through narrow opening or around sharp corners
what is refraction? it is the change of speed and direction that occurs when a wave goes from one medium to another.
When a wave is made in a medium continuously, the particles inside the medium start to oscillate continuously. The disturbance in the medium is known as? Propagation wave
what is Matter waves dependent on? is dependent on the atomic and subatomic particles and it forms part of the foundation of quantum mechanics.
wave beat are sounds produced by a combination of _____ waves with almost the same frequencies two waves
wave beats are caused by wave ________ wave interference
when does wave inversion occur? wave inversion occurs when a traveling wave is turned upside down when being reflected
rigid waves always ______ invert
what is wave intensity? it is the average power that travels through a given area as the wave travels through space
How is the intensity of sound waves measured it is measured through a decibel scale
wave interference is a result of the interaction of ______ multiple waves
The types of wave interference include ________ and ________ constructive and destructive interference
