Storyboard Text

  • Yeah those!
  • Now tell me about the other type of wave!
  • Longitudinal waves you mean?
  • Longitudinal waves are when the disturbance or particle moves in the same direction as the wave.
  • Examples are sound waves or when a slinky moves back and forth.
  • What are some examples of longitudinal waves?
  • Well I want to hear it!
  • I feel like I know so much about waves now! Is there anything left to know?
  • There is so much more to know! 
  • Another one? There is already so many!
  • Well there is yet another way waves can be classified.
  • A pulse wave is defined as a single nonperiodic disturbance. A periodic wave is defined as a wave whose source is some form of periodic motion.
  • Yes, there are two wave types. They are pulse waves and periodic waves.
  • Hm. I'm still kind of confused. Could you give me examples of each?
  • I definitely can.
