Waves - Coggle Diagram
A wave is a disturbance.
Forces and Waves
Waves result from force.
Materials and Waves
any substance a wave moves through
waves that transfer energy through matter
Energy and Waves
different types of waves can result in different energy uses.
Wave speed can be measured.
Speed = wavelength * frequency
f = 0.31 (wave) / s
wavelength = 16 m/(wave)
Waves interact with materials.
Reflection is the bouncing back
of a wave after it strikes a barrier.
Refraction is the bending of a
wave as it entera a new medium.
Diffraction is the spreading out
of waves through a opening.
Waves can be classified by how they move.
direction of travel is perpendicular
to the direction of the disturbance.
wave travels in same direction as disturbance.
Waves interact with other waves.
Waves can add together.
Waves can cancel out.
Waves have amplitude, wavelength, and frequency.
Measuring wave properties
lowest point of a wave
highest point of a wave
how far wave rises above or falls below original position
how often a wave occurs
distance from one wave crest to next wave crest
