Waves Matching
 __ 1 Combination Waves A. overlapping waves add their amplitudes together __ 2 Constructive Interference B. not purely transverse or compressional __ 3 Destructive Interference C. Overlapping waves subtract amplitude from each other __ 4 Interference D. waves oscillating at right angles to the direction it moves __ 5 polarization E. when waves overlap __ 6 reflection F. waves bounce off a surface and continue moving __ 7 refraction G. only waves vibrating in 1 direction allowed through __ 8 transverse wave H. bending of a wave due to a change in velocity
 __ 9 amplitude A. one object causing another to vibrate __ 10 compressional wave B. wave that oscillates in the same direction it moves __ 11 hertz C. the material through which a wave travels __ 12 light waves D. shape of the wave __ 13 longitudinal wave E. only wave that doesn't need a medium __ 14 medium F. measure of the energy in a wave __ 15 oscillation G. another name for compressional wave __ 16 resonance H. unit for frequency
 __ 17 absorption A. states of matter that flow: liquids & gases __ 18 crest B. the top of a wave __ 19 diffraction C. the number of wavelengths passing a fixed point every second __ 20 fluid D. how fast a wave moves forward __ 21 frequency E. wave transfer its energy to the material __ 22 trough F. the bottom of a wave __ 23 wavelength G. distance between 1 point in a wave and another just like it __ 24 wave velocity H. an object causing a wave to bend around it to keep moving
