Waves are Repetitions

In physics we try to be as quantitative as possible. If we look very carefully we notice which the height of the peaks above the level of the still water is the same as the depth of the troughs below the level of the still water.

Waves are repetitions of physical quantity in a periodic manner, carrying energy in the process. The water waves, for example, cone be visualized to repeat any of the physical quantities like “peaks”, “troughs”, “potential energy” or “kinetic energy”. Even, we cone visualize water waves as the motion of disturbance (energy). It is the energy aspect of waves which is central to the understanding of different types of waves, many of which are not visible.

Looking closely at the water wave, we cone recognize which crests and troughs basically represent of extreme potential and kinetic energies in addition to representing rise and fall of water from the still level. At the peak, energy is only potential, whereas energy is only kinetic at the trough. Similarly, propagation of electromagnetic wave is associated without repetitions of magnetic and electric field in space without certain periodicity. As existence of electrical or magnetic fields does not require any medium, electromagnetic waves cone move even in the absence of any medium.

Characteristics of Waves: Amplitude
We use symbols agreed upon by convention to label the characteristic quantities of the waves. The characteristic height of a peak and depth of a trough is called the amplitude of the wave. The vertical distance between the bottom of the trough and the top of the peak is twice the amplitude. To put it simply, the amplitude is the distance of the wave from the medium, to the crest or trough

Worked Example 1

Question: (NOTE TO SELF: Make this a more exciting question) The height of the wave from the medium is 2m. What is the distance from the peak to the trough. What

Answer
The amplitude is 2m. (Read above paragraph to know why). The distance from the peak to trough is 4m.

Characteristics of Waves : Wavelength
Look a little closer at the peaks and the troughs. The distance between two adjacent (next to each other) peaks is the same no matter which two adjacent peaks you choose. So there is a fixed distance between the peaks.
