A = Wavelength- distance from any part of the wave to the same point on the next cycle of the waveB = Frequency (also the Direction of Wave)- the number of wave cycles per unit (unit=hertz)C = Period- time it takes for one wave cycle to completeD = Amplitude- maximum height to the rest positionE = Direction of EnergyF = Trough- the lowest point of a waveG = Crest- the highest point of a waveH = Equilibrium (also the Rest Point)- part where the energy is the same throughout the wave

Movement of Surface Waves:

A = Rarefaction- the part of a wave that stretches out the most B = Compression- the part of a wave that stretches out the most C = Rest Position- area of rest in a waveD = Direction of EnergyE = Direction of Wave

A= Crest- highest point of surface waveB= Wavelength- distance from one point of a surface wave to another which is the same part but of a the next cycleC= Rest PositionD= Trough- the lowest point of a surface waveE= Wave Height- distance from crest to trough

WAVE FORMULAS

Speed= \[Wavelength·Frequency\]

Speed= \[\frac{Wavelength}{Period}\]

Frequency=\[\frac{Speed}{Wavelength}\]

Wavelength= \[Speed·Frequency\]

\[\lambda=Wavelength\]

\[v=Velocity\](Speed)

\[T=Period\]
