• Q4
As a transverse wave travels through a medium, it displaces the particles
vertically along the same plane as the wave.
parallel to the direction of the wave motion.
horizontally along the plane that the waves travels.
perpendicular to the motion of the wave.

• Q5
In order to determine the wavelength, you must know the distance from the
trough of one wave to the crest of the next wave.
midpoint of a wave to the highest point of the next wave.
the crest of one wave to the crest of the next wave.
crest of the wave to the equilibrium of the same wave.

Wavelength.
Equilibrium.
Amplitude.
Frequency.

• Q7
The vertical displacement of the wave is measured from the
trough to the trough and is called the wavelength.
equilibrium to the crest and is called the frequency.
crest to the trough and is called the amplitude.
equilibrium to the crest and is called the amplitude.

• Q8
Which statement best describes the movement of particles when a wave travels through a medium? The particles are
gathered by the energy of the wave and move along in the direction of the wave.
moved along in a forward motion with the wave as it travels through the medium.
permanently displaced in a direction opposite to the direction of the wave.
temporarily displaced and return to their normal position when the wave passes.
