A form of energy that exhibits wavelike behavior as it travels through space
It is the shortest distance between equivalent points on a continuous wave. It is called period in trigonometry. The wavelength or period is defined as crest to crest or trough to trough. In trig it is defined as 360 degrees/k.
It is the number of waves that pass a certain point per second.
the wave’s height from the origin to the crest.
This encompasses all forms of electromagnetic radiation, with the only differences being their wavelengths and frequencies.
