Exploring Waves

Pulse Wave – A single disturbance that moves from one point to another.


Periodic Wave – series or repeating of many disturbance at regular, even intervals.


Transverse Waves – the displacement of the highest point (crest), or the lowest point (trough) from the mid point of the wave is perpendicular (90° angle) to the direction the wave is travelling to.


Longitudinal Wave – The disturbance is in the same direction of the wave it will travel to.
