Waves - SS2 Geography Lesson Note

Waves are the periodic, rhythmic disturbances that travel through a medium, such as water or air. They transfer energy from one place to another without transporting matter.


There are several key terms associated with waves:


  • Amplitude: The height or distance from the rest position of a wave's crest or trough.


  • Frequency: The number of wave cycles (crests and troughs) passing a point in one second, measured in Hertz (Hz).


  • Wavelength: The distance between two consecutive points in a wave with the same phase, such as two crests or two troughs.


  • Period: The time it takes for one complete wave cycle to pass a point.
