## What is the distance between two repeating points of a wave?

Wavelength is the distance between two consecutive and equivalent points on a wave. Wavelength can be quantified by measuring the distance between two equivalent and consecutive points, such as the distance between two peaks or two troughs. The scientific symbol for wavelength is a Greek letter called lambda.

**What is it called when a wave repeats itself?**

Like waves on a pond, a radio wave is a series of repeating peaks and valleys. The entire pattern of a wave, before it repeats itself, is called a cycle. The wavelength is the distance a wave takes to complete one cycle. The number of cycles, or times that a wave repeats in a second, is called frequency.

**How often does a wave repeat itself?**

This rate of 2 cycles/second is referred to as the frequency of the wave. The frequency of a wave refers to how often the particles of the medium vibrate when a wave passes through the medium. Frequency is a part of our common, everyday language.

### What is the minimum distance between two point in a wave having a phase difference of 2π?

Answer. It will have to be one wavelength. Now if you substitute Δϕ=2π you will end up with Δx=λ.

**What is the lowest point of wave called?**

the trough

The lowest part is called the trough. The wave height is the overall vertical change in height between the crest and the trough and distance between two successive crests (or troughs) is the length of the wave or wavelength.

**What is the distance between two consecutive crest?**

wavelength

The horizontal distance between two adjacent crests or troughs is known as the wavelength.

#### What is the distance between two points in a wave having a phase difference 3pi 4?

We have to find the wavelength of the wave if the phae angle between two points is 3π/4 and the distance between two points is 3 cm. solution : we know, wavelength is the minimum seperation between two successive crests or troughs of a wave. and λ is wavelength of the wave. therefore the wavelength of the wave is 8 cm.

**What is the phase difference between two points on a wavefront?**

The phase difference between two points on a wavefront is zero. The phase difference is defined as the difference in the phase angle between the two waves.

**Which of the following refers to the highest and lowest point of a wave pattern?**

Crest – the highest point in the wave. Trough – the lowest point in the wave.

## What is amplitude in waves?

amplitude, in physics, the maximum displacement or distance moved by a point on a vibrating body or wave measured from its equilibrium position. It is equal to one-half the length of the vibration path.
