Wave[edit | edit source]

Wave is a Periodic motion of a periodic oscillation carries energy travels in space. For example, Light wave, Sound wave, Electric wave, Electromagnetic wave . When talking about wave, we talk about wavelength, speed, angular speed, frequency

Sinusoidal wave[edit | edit source]


It can be shoen that all sinusoidal wave has a mathematical Wave function which is a root of a Wave equation as shown below
