Waves carry energy and momentum from one place to another without the transport of matter.
The velocity of any mechanical wave, whether transverse or longitudinal, depends both on the inertial properties of the medium (to store kinetic energy) and its elastic properties (to store...
It is the combination of two or more waves that are in the same region of space generating a resultant wave.
In addition to the phenomenon of interference, presented in the previous section, the waves present a wide range of behavior in different situations. The main ones are presented below.
