6 Wavelength-The distance between two corresponding parts of a wave (from crest to crest) Amplitude-Maximum distance that the medium particles move away from their rest positions.Crest-High point of a waveTrough-Low point of a wave
7 Frequency-number of complete waves that pass a given point in a certain amount of time ; measured in hertz (Hz); 1 wave every second = 1 HzSpeed- how far the wave travels in a given amount of time.

10 Electromagnetic Spectrum EM waves are classified in order of increasing frequency.The shorter the wavelength the greater energy the wave has. The longer the wavelength the less energy the wave has.Radio Waves, Microwaves, Infrared waves, Visible light, Ultraviolet Rays, X-Rays, Gamma Rays
