A wave is a movement caused by a disturbance, and it travels through a medium.
Here's a list of formulas and information about this content.
|Mechanical waves|| |
These are waves in which propagation involves the transport of kinetic and potential energy and are dependent on the elasticity of the medium.
|These are waves generated by oscillation of electric charges, where propagation does not depend on the medium in which they are propagated, so they can happen in a vacuum.|
|Longitudinal waves||They are the waves married by vibrations in the same direction as the propagation.|
|Transverse Waves||These are the waves caused by vibrations perpendicular to the propagation direction.|
|One-dimensional waves||They are those that propagate in only one direction, like waves in strings and strings|
|Two-dimensional waves||They are those that spread over a surface, like water in a lake when throwing a stone;|
|Three-dimensional waves||They are able to propagate in all dimensions, such as light and sound.|

|1st Law of Reflection||The incident radius, the reflected radius and the line perpendicular to the reflecting surface at the point of incidence are always contained in the same plane.|
|2nd Law of Reflection||The angles formed between the incident radius and the perpendicular line and between the reflected radius and the perpendicular line always have the same measurement.|
|1st Law of Refraction|| |
The incident radius, the line perpendicular to the boundary at the point of incidence and the refracted radius are contained in the same plane.
