Flashcards in Module 3 Deck (13):

0

## A periodic disturbance that moves away from a source and carries energy with it

### wave

1

## the direction of the wave is perpendicular to the direction of the particle displacement

### transversal wave

2

## the direction of the wave is parallel to the directino of the particle

### longitudinal wave

3

## height of the wave

### amplitude

4

## highest point of the wave

### crest

5

## lowest point in the wave

### trough

6

## distance between adjacent crests or troughs

### wavelength

7

## formula for frequency

### v (wave speed)/ wavelength = f

8

## formula for speed v (velocity)

### v = square root of (Tension)/(mass/length)

9

## two pulses moving in opposite directions along a stretched string

### principle of superposition

10

## harmonic wave

### graph of y=sin x

11

## wave function

### y = f(x-vt)
