  2. 2. Waves have Measureable Properties Pages 16-21 (section C)
  3. 3. Measuring Wave Properties <ul><li>Crest - the highest point, or peak of a wave </li></ul>
  4. 4. Measuring Wave Properties <ul><li>Trough - the lowest point, or valley of a wave </li></ul>
  5. 5. Measuring Wave Properties <ul><li>Amplitude - the distance between a line through the middle of a wave and crest or trough </li></ul>Amplitude is important because it indicates how much energy a wave is carrying. *The bigger the amplitude, the more energy the wave has.*
  6. 6. Measuring Wave Properties <ul><li>Wavelength - the distance from crest to crest or trough to trough </li></ul>
  7. 7. Measuring Wave Properties <ul><li>Frequency - the number of wavelengths that passes a fixed point in a certain amount of time </li></ul>
  8. 8. Wave Speed <ul><li>Wave speed can be measured: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Speed= wavelength x frequency </li></ul></ul>
