Transcript of The 4 Wave Behaviors

by: Chinyere Adiele ` 4 Different Wave Behaviors!!! Reflection!!! Refraction!!! Diffraction!!! Absorption!!! Reflection is when wave energy bounces back after striking a surface or barrier.

An example of reflection is a mirror or an echo. Refraction is when wave energy is bent as it goes through a medium.

An example of refraction is light going through a cup, glass, or prism; or a pencil in water. Absorption is when wave energy is taken into a substance or object.

An example of absorption are black clothes absorbing heat. SO . . . . . . . . . .
NOW YOU KNOW THE 4 DIFFERENT WAVE BEHAVIORS AND WHAT THEY DO. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU ALL! During diffraction wave energy bends around a barrier.
If the wavelength is similar in size to the barrier it will diffract better.
An example of diffraction are sound waves.
