Rarefaction: the spread out part of the wave Compression: the part of the wave that is close together
What are 2 types of Compressional Waves?
He's so nosy!
Parts of Transverse waves:
Crest Amplitude Trough Equilibrium Wavelength
-A mechanical wave is a wave that needs a source to make a disturbance so that it can carry energy. -For example; air, earthquakes, people, and etc. -Electromagnetic waves don't need a source to create waves. -For example; air, water, and gases.
Google: Mechanical and Electromagnetic Waves
Dude, homework question: What is frequency?
The rate in which a disturbance occurs in a period of time.
Oh, look a Transverse wave! A Transverse is a wave that has energy move it up and down or backward and forward.
That's great and all but how does that help our situation?!
Transverse Waves -A wave that moves up and down or back and forth
I don't want you guys to just paint waves, I want you all to understand them.
Compressional Waves (Longitudinal) A wave that moves forward and backward
