Waves

WAVES
Transverse Wave A wave in which the elements of the medium move perpendicular
to the direction the wave travels.
Longitudinal Wave A wave in which the elements of the medium move parallel to the
direction the wave travels.
Wave Speed v = fλ          f = frequency          λ = wavelength
Velocity of a Wave
on a String
v = √T/µ         T = Tension         µ = m/L linear mass density
