Characteristics of wave motion

For the propagation of the waves, the medium must possess both inertia and elasticity, which decide the velocity of the wave in that medium.

Characteristics of wave motion

 

·           For the propagation of the waves, the medium must possess both inertia and elasticity, which decide the velocity of the wave in that medium.

·           In a given medium, the velocity of a wave is a constant whereas the constituent particles in that medium move with different velocities at different positions. Velocity is maximum at their mean position and zero at extreme positions.

·           Waves undergo reflections, refraction, interference, diffraction and polarization.
