 Vibration- the cyclical motion of an object through an equilibrium point What kind of wave does sound travel as? molecular structure, density, temperature Affects how a medium transmits vibrations waves same position moving same direction period- the time it takes a for a vibrating particle to complete 1 cycle Sound intensity is due to? Wave speed- What is affected by the temperature in a gas medium? particles move same direction What is the difference between vibration and mechanical waves? How are they related? A vibration is the cyclical motion of an object through the equilibrium. Mechanical waves are the transfer of energy through a material. Vibrations create waves. Transverse- particles move perpendicular to the direction of the wave lowest point on wave Longitudinal- particles move same direction highest point on wave Crest- highest point on wave distance from either crest or trough trough- lowest point on wave the time it takes a for a vibrating particle to complete 1 cycle Amplitude- distance from either crest or trough What is affected by the temperature in a gas medium? Wave length- the distance of a wave factors that affect the medium In phase- waves same position moving same direction particles move perpendicular to the direction of the wave Temperature, tension, density- factors that affect the medium - the cyclical motion of an object through an equilibrium point Longitudinal- What kind of wave does sound travel as? the distance of a wave Amplitude of the wave- Sound intensity is due to? molecular structure, density, temperature Affects how a medium transmits vibrations
