This storyboard does not have a description.
Of course I can waves have two different types of waves. The Transverse wave and Longitudinal Wave. The Transverse waves goes up and down and the Longitudinal goes back and forth.
Hey Kathy can you teach me about waves??
Well the Transverse wave has a amplitude that measures the height of the waves. It have a wavelength that measures that distance between a crest to crest or a trough to trough.
The definition of the a Transverse Wave: a wave vibrating at right angles of direction of its propagations. Crest: the highest point the medium rises Amplitude: of a wave refers to the maximum amount of displacement of a particle on the medium from its rest position Trough: the lowest point that a medium sinks.
Now to Longitudinal waves are waves that go back and forth they have something called compression and rarefaction. It wavelength is from one compression to other. When it comes to rarefaction is how far a wave is and a compression is how tight a wave is.
Longitudinal Wave: a wave vibrating in the direction of propagation Compression: traveling through a medium Rarefaction: particles that closest together.
that explains a lot thank you Kathy
