The waves are bea-utiful I remember how they happen too .
The Mechanical wave needs Matter (medium) to transfer energy . The electromagnetic wave dose not .
That was when we were in the eighth grade I remember a little bit .
That was only seventeen years ago . Lets go find our children .
Another type is a compression wave and it's Logitudinal and compressional wave has another part which is a rarefaction .
SO mom and dad what causes waves to happen?
Waves are created by a source of energy that causes a vibration . It carries energy through medium or empty spaces .
Waves are the rythemic distubances that carries energy and knocks down objects .
What makes a wave?
The very top is called the Crest and the very bottom Trough the amplitude is from the crest to the resting position the resting position is what the wave rest on the wavelength is from one side of the crest to another and a Equilibrium is a reating point on a wave . There are two different kinds of waves Mechanical and Electromagnetic .
Mechanical needs matter and Electromagnetic dose not need matter .
Tell us more . Tell us more .
Well.... there's a wave called a Transverse wave that is an Mechanical wave .
So there you have it thats how waves happen . GREAT JOB!!!
