Waves

Waves have a surprising amount of physics behind them, and not the waves at football games.  The simplest definition of wave motion is that it moves energy from one point to another.  Waves are an oscillation of energy that travels through a medium.  Their are tow main types of waves, one being mechanical waves.  Mechanical waves travel through a medium and are then restored by restoring forces to reverse the work done.  The other type of waves is electromagnetic waves in which the main difference is that they do not require a medium.  They consist of periodic oscillations of electrical and magnetic fields generated by charged particles,
