Essential Vocabulary & Concepts
Picture Core Knowledge or Concept
tidal wave
A wave is a disturbance that transfers energy from place to place. (i.e. jump rope)

Two categories of waves are:
a. Mechanical Waves- require a medium to travel through. (i.e. water waves in a pond)
b. Electromagnetic Waves- do not need a medium. (i.e. light and radio waves.)

A medium is a material through which a mechanical wave travels.
Waves Two types of waves are: TransverseWave

a. Transverse - waves that move the medium at right angles to the direction in which the waves are traveling.

The top is a crest and the bottom is a trough.
(i.e. like a snake wiggling side to side in an ‘S’ shape)
speaker
b. Longitudinal - waves move the particles of the medium parallel (the long way) to the direction that the waves are traveling. CreatingALongitudinalWave

Compression is close together and rarefaction is spread out.
(i.e. like a slinky getting squeezed and then opening up)
properties
frequency
Properties of waves are:Transvere Versus Longitudinal Waves

a. Amplitude is the maximum distance the particles of a medium move away from their resting point as a wave passes through the medium.


b. Wavelength is the distance between two corresponding parts of a wave.


c. Frequency is the number of complete waves that pass a given point in a certain amount of time.

d. speed is the distance travelled divided by time.

 speed = wavelength x frequency (= distance / time)
interference
Interference between waves that meet.

When two waves pass through each other they can add together to make a larger amplitude or cancel each another out
Joseph Fourier
Scientist

Jean-Baptiste Joseph Fourier (1768-1830) was a French mathematician who worked on how frequencies are related by developing the Fourier Transform/
UltraSound
Technology

Sonograms use sound waves that pass through the medium of the body to make pictures.
