• ## Progressive Waves: Definition, Types & Examples

What are Progressive Waves? The waves which transfer energy by moving away from the source of disturbance are called progressive or traveling waves. Progressive wave Example Consider two persons holding the opposite ends of the rope. Suddenly one person gives…

• ## Types of periodic waves

The waves which are produced by continuous and rhythmic disturbances in a medium are called periodic waves. These may be transverse or longitudinal in nature. A good example of periodic waves is an oscillating mass-spring system that executes Simple harmonic…

• ## Difference between Tsunami and tidal wave

The Differences between Tsunamis and Tidal Waves are given here. The moment an earthquake occurs near the coast or on a coast close to another, one begins to speak of the risk of a tsunami or tsunami, both terms being…

• ## Different Types of Waves in Physics With Examples

Waves transport energy without transporting matter. The energy transportation is carried by a disturbance, which spreads out from a source. Basically, there are three types of waves. Mechanical waves, electromagnetic waves, and matter waves. Transverse waves and Mechanical waves are…

• ## Simple pendulum formula and time period equation

A simple pendulum also exhibits SHM. It consists of a small bob of mass ‘m’ suspended from a light string of length ‘L’ fixed at its upper end. In the equilibrium position O, the net force on the bob is…

• ## Difference between transverse waves and longitudinal waves

Transverse waves and longitudinal waves are types of mechanical waves. The basic difference between transverse and longitudinal waves is that in transverse waves particles of waves move perpendicular in the direction of the wave while in longitudinal waves particles move…

• ## Difference between Sound and noise in tabular form

The Difference Between noise is given here. Sound is any phenomenon in which the propagation of mechanical waves through a fluid that generates the vibratory movement of a body occurs, while noise is a generally unpleasant auditory sensation and is…

• ## Properties of Wave motion

Wave motion is a form of disturbance that travels forward due to the repeated periodic motion of particles about their mean position. Now we will discuss the characteristics of wave motion. What are the main properties of Wave Motion? Crests:…

• ## Velocity, frequency and Wavelength

The relationship between the velocity, frequency, and wavelength of a wave is called the wave equation. Explanation: If the speed of waves is v and their time period is T then the wavelength of waves can be calculated as: This…

• ## Examples of Simple Harmonic Motion

Simple harmonic motion is the kind of vibratory motion in Physics in which the body moves back and forth about its mean position. ExamplesÂ ofÂ simple harmonic motion are: – A sheet fixed at one end and vibrating at the other end.…
