D1: Wave: Waves transfer energy and
interact in predictible ways.
1.2: Waves have measurable properties.
Waves have amplitutde, wavelength, and frequency.
Measuring Wave Properties
1.1: Waves transfer energy
A wave is a disturbance.
Wave: a disturbance that transfers energy form one place to another. they can transfer enerfy over distance without mocing the matter the entire distance.
Materials and Waves
Medium: any substance that a wace moces through
mechanical waves: waves that transfer energy through matter
Forces and Waves
a force is required to change the motion of an object
Energy and Waves
Waves can be classified by how they move.
the wave is a horizontal, or forward wave
the direction in which the wave travels is perpendicular to the direction of the disturbance
examples are water waves
the wave travels in the same direction as the disturbance
can be started in a spring by moving ir forward and backward
examples are sounds waves
