a phenomenon that occurs when two objects naturally vibrate at the same frequency; the sound produced by one object cause the other object to vibrate
Resonance
a wave in which the particles of the medium vibrates parallel to the direction of the wave motion
Longitudinal Wave
a wave in which the particles of the medium move perpendicularly to the direction of the wave is traveling
Transverse Wave
the combination of two or more waves that result in a single wave
Interference
a bouncing back of a ray of light,sound,or heat when the ray hits a surface that it does not go through
Reflection
is a substance through which a wave can travel
Medium
a change in the direction of a wave which the wave finds an obstacle or an edge, such as a opening
diffraction
is the distance between any two crest or compressions next to each other in a wave
Wavelength
a pattern of vibration that simulates a wave that is standing still
standing waves
the maximum distance that the particles of a wave's medium vibrate from their rest positon
Amplitude
the number of waves produced in a given amount of time
Frequency
the bending of a wave as the wave passes between two substances in which the speed of the wave differs
Refraction
is any disturbance that transmit energy through matter or empty space
Wave
the speed at which a wave travels through a medium
Wave Speed
