Periodic Motion
What is a Wave?
Classification of Waves I
Characteristics of Waves
superposition of waves
by Gilma Adunas

A wave is a disturbance or oscillation that travels through space. It is accompanied by a transfer of Energy.
Do they need a medium to propagate?
Not at
all!
Yes, please.

Wave Interference
Ocurrs when two
or more waves
arrive at the same
point.

Constructive Interference
If two Waves have the same frequency, and if
Waves arrive in phase (crests are aligned), they will constructively interfere.

Wave Interference
Destructive Interference
If two waves have the same frequency, and if they arrive out of phase (crests aligned with valleys), they will destructively interfere.
Real Sound Signal
Conclusions
Waves are everywhere!
They are disturbances that propagate through space.
Waves carry energy.
Mechanical waves require a medium to propagate. Electromagnetic ones do not.
Waves may also be classified as Transverse or Longitudinal.
