Waves • result from periodic disturbance • same period (frequency) as source • characterized by –amp l i tude (how far do the “bits” move from their equilibrium positions) –pe r iod (how long does it take for each “bit” to go through one cycle) or frequency – wavelength (over what distance does the cycle repeat in a freeze frame) – speed (how fast is the energy transferred)

You see waves rolling onto the beach and estimate the wavelength at about 3.0 m. You measure the time between wave crests at 0.50 s. What is the speed of the waves? 3.0 m v = ? AB v = λ / T but, 1/ T = f How long for the crest at A to reach B?
