Wave motion characteristics

 What is a Wave Motion: 

Wave Motion is a form of disturbance which travels through a medium due to repeated periodic motion of the particles of the medium about their mean positions. The motion being handed on from one particle to the next.

Difference periodic motion, oscillatory motion and simple harmonic motion

Let us discuss the meaning or definition of periodic motion, oscillatory motion, simple harmonic motion and difference among them:

Periodic Motion:

The motion which repeats itself over and over again after equal intervals of time is known as periodic motion.

Example of periodic motion: Motion of planets around sun motion of earth above its own axis.

Period of Motion: Continue reading “Difference periodic motion, oscillatory motion and simple harmonic motion”
