Waves are vibrations that move through a medium, such as air or water. Waves can be mechanical, like sound waves, or electromagnetic, like light. Waves can be measured by their wavelength, frequency, and amplitude.
Waves: What are they?

Wave: A wave is a disturbance that travels through space and time, transferring energy from one point to another. Amplitude: The amplitude of a wave is the maximum distance from the equilibrium or rest position to the peak of a wave. Frequency: Frequency is the number of complete cycles of a wave per unit of time, usually measured in Hertz (Hz).

The highest wave ever recorded was in Alaska in 1958 and measured 1,717 feet (524 meters) high. The power of a single wave can be enough to light up 10,000 homes. When waves interact with each other, they can form a process called constructive interference, which can cause waves to appear even bigger than before.

Question: What is the difference between a transverse wave and a longitudinal wave? Clues: • Transverse waves move perpendicular to the direction of the wave. • Longitudinal waves move parallel to the direction of the wave. • Both types of waves have energy that is transferred through a medium. In pairs: Select and solve one of the tasks: A. Draw a diagram that shows the difference between a transverse wave and a longitudinal wave. B. Explain how the two types of waves are similar and how they are different.
