Give three examples of waves that require a medium and identify the medium.
Which types of waves do not require a medium?
What happens to the total energy carried
by waves as they travel from their source?
How is a weight vibrating on a string like
the motion of a wave?
Diagram a transverse wave.
Diagram a longitudinal wave.
Transverse waves have __________________ motion.
Longitudinal waves have __________________
Use a series of diagrams to explain how
the motion of water molecules on the surface of a wave travel in a circle.
