Properties of waves Jose Pablo Alvarez
1. A wave is a disturbance involving the transfer of energy from place to place.
1. Amplitude
1. The amplitude is the maximum distance the medium vibrates from the rest position. Amplitude describes how far the medium in a wave moves.
2. Wavelength
1. A wave travels certain distance before it starts to repeat. The distance between two corresponding parts of a wave is called the wavelength. The Wavelength describes the wave’s length
2. Frequency
1. The frequency is the number of waves that pass a given point in a certain amount of time. Frequency is measured in units called hertz (Hz), and is defined as the number of waves per second.
2. Speed
1. The speed of a wave is how far the wave travels in a given amount of time. Different waves travel at different speeds. You can determinate the speed of a wave by dividing the distance it travels by the time it takes to travel the distance.
