cresthighest point of transverse wave
troughlowest point of transverse wave
wavelengthdistance from crest to crest or trough
amplitudedistance from rest position to crest or trough
rest positionmedium before the disturbance occurs
mediummaterial a wave travels through
energyability to do work
mechanical wavewave that must of a medium to travel
transverse wavewave & energy travel at right angles to the direction medium travels
