General Wave Properties. Taken from ed links. What is a wave?. A wave is a transfer of energy from one point to another via a traveling disturbance A wave is characterized by its wavelength, frequency, and amplitude. Transverse . Waves that travel perpendicular to the direction of motion

Traveling Waves move through space at a certain speed
v is the speed of the wave (m/s)
λis the wavelength in meters (m)
f is the frequency in Hertz (cycle/s)
where p is momentum in kg*m/s, h is Planck’s constant = 6.63 x 10-34 J, and λ is the wavelength in meters
c is the speed of light (3 x 108 m/s in a vacuum)
λ is the wavelength in meters
f is the frequency in Hertz
h is Planck’s constant (there it is again- do you remember its value?)
E is the energy of a photon in Joules
h is Plank’s constant
ν is the frequency of the radiation (wave)
y is its wavelength?
