Waves

Waves

  • Wavelength () - length of one complete wave

  • Frequency () - # of waves that pass a point during a certain time period

    • hertz (Hz) = 1/s or s-1

  • Amplitude (A) - distance from the origin to the trough or crest

  • Frequency & wavelength are inversely proportional

c = 

c:speed of light (3.00  108 m/s)

:wavelength (m)

:frequency (Hz or s-1)
