A wave that needs a medium to travel is called a(n)
electromagnetic wave
mechanical wave
ocean wave
any way can do this
A wave that can travel with or without a medium is called a(n)
electromagnetic wave
mechanical wave
surface wave
all waves can travel in any way
Longitudinal waves have:
crests and troughs
crests and compressions
compressions and rarefactions
troughs and rarefactions
Transverse waves have:
crests and troughs
troughs and rarefactions
compressions and contractions
rarefactions and crests
How often a wave occurs is the wave's
frequency
amplitude
wavelength
velocity
Transverse waves move mediums
at a right angle
in a circle
and matter too
at an acute angle
Longitudinal waves move:
at a right angle compared to the direction the wave is traveling
in a circle compared to the direction the wave is traveling
matter
in the same direction as the wave is traveling
Particles in water in an ocean wave move
in a square
in a right angle
in a circle
in a dodecahedron

What happens to the frequency of a wave when the amplitude is tripled?
the frequency is tripled
the frequency is a third of what it was
amplitude does not affect frequency
What would happen to the wavelength if the frequency was doubled?
the wavelength would be halved
the wavelength would be doubled
the wavelength would stay the same
frequency does not affect wavelength
What would happen to the frequency is the wavelength was tripled?
the frequency would be a third of what it was
the frequency would be 3 times larger
the frequency would stay the same
the wavelength does not affect the frequency of a wave
