6.1 Understanding Waves
1. Motion of WavesA wave front is a line or plane on which the vibration of every points on it are in phaseand are at the………….(same/different) position from the source of the water.2.

When we use a fingertip to touch the surface of water repeatedly, ……....(circular/plane)wavefronts are produced.3. Types of wavesThere are 2 types of waves :-(a) ……………….(b) ……………….

4. Transverse wave(i). Transverse wave is a wave in which the vibration of particles in the medium isat ……………….. (parallel/perpendicular) to the direction of propagation of the wave.A = … ……………….(crest / compression)B = …………………..(rarefaction /trough)(ii). Example of transverse wave:i. ……………………………………..ii……………………………………...iii……………………………………..5. Longitudinal waves(i) A longitudinal is a wave in which the vibration of particles in the medium is……………………….(parallel / proportional) to the direction of propagationof wave.(ii) Example of longitudinal wave:…………………………..P = …………………..(crest / compression)Q = …………………..(rarefaction / trough)
