1Forces and MotionEssential Vocabulary6.P.1.1 Compare the properties of waves to the wavelike property of energy in earthquakes, light and sound.6.P.1.2 Explain the relationship among visible light, the electromagnetic spectrum, and sight.6.P.1.3 Explain the relationship among the rate of vibration, the medium through which vibrations travel, sound and hearing.
2WaveA moving disturbance that transfers energy through matter or space.
3Transverse WavesA type of mechanical wave in which the wave energy causes matter in the medium to move up and down or back and forth at right angles to the direction the wave travels.
4Longitudinal WavesA wave that causes the particles of the medium to vibrate parallel to the direction the wave travels.
5Potential EnergyStored energy that results from the position or shape of an object.
