IPC Notes The Nature of Waves
A wave is a repeating disturbance or movement that transfers energy through matter or space. ex) light, sound & radio
The Nature of Waves A medium is any material that a wave transfers energy through. ex) water is the medium for ocean waves
2 Types of Waves A transverse wave occurs when the particle movement is at right angles to the direction of the wave. ex) water waves
2 Types of Waves A compressional wave occurs when the particle movement is in the same direction as the wave. ex) sound waves
Wave Properties wavelength – the distance between one point on a wave and the nearest point just like it
Wave Properties frequency – the number of wavelengths that pass a given point each second
Wave Properties crest – the highest point of a wave
Wave Properties trough – the lowest point of a wave
Wave Properties amplitude – the measure of the energy of a wave
Wave Diagrams Draw a transverse wave diagram and label the following parts: crest, trough, wavelength, amplitude & rest position
Compressional Waves compression – the part of a compressional wave where the particles are close together
Compressional Waves rarefaction – the part of a compressional wave where the particles are far apart
Compressional Waves wavelength – includes one complete compression and one complete rarefaction
Waves Definitions © 2006 Certiport.com. Wave A rhythmic disturbance that carries energy without carrying matter.
Chapter 14 Waves/Sound. The Nature of Waves What is a wave? A wave is a repeating disturbance or movement that transfers energy through matter or space.
What is a wave? A disturbance that travels through space or matter, with a transfer of energy. There are two types of waves. 1. Mechanical Waves 2. Electromagnetic.

What is a Wave? Sound and Light are forms of energy that travel in waves A wave is a repeating disturbance or movement that transfers energy through matter.
UNIT 3. What is a Wave? Definition: A disturbance that transfers energy from place to place. What carries waves? A medium, a medium is the material through.

1 Vibration: A repeated back-and-forth or up-and-down motion. Energy: The ability to do work.
Essential Question: How does data collected provide evidence that the amount of energy a wave carries determines the properties of a wave?

WHAT ARE WAVES? Wave is a disturbance that transfers energy. Medium(plural media) is a substance through which a wave can travel. The particles of a medium.
Waves O 1.1 Waves. Waves Waves – disturbances that carry energy through matter or space but don’t carry matter. Mechanical waves – waves that require.

Physical Science 8 th Grade Waves A wave is a rhythmic disturbance that transmits ENERGY through matter or space. Waves carry energy NOT matter. A wave.
Waves and Wave Properties. A wave is a disturbance that carries energy from place to place. A wave does NOT carry matter with it! It just moves the matter.
