In a transverse wave the oscillations are perpendicular to the direction of energy transfer
Transverse waves cannot travel through a vacuum
Frequency is measured in...
When light enters a more dense medium it is refracted
towards the normal
away from the normal
Waves are not refracted if they are travelling along the normal
