User: For refraction to occur in a wave, the wave must (1 point) strike an obstacle larger than the wavelength. change direction within a medium. enter a new medium at an angle. enter a new medium head-on.

Weegy: C. enter a new medium at an angle.

4. Suppose two waves collide, and the temporary combined wave that results is smaller than the original waves. What term best describes this interaction? (1 point) diffraction destructive interference standing wave formation constructive interference
Weegy: B. destructive interference User: The formation of a standing wave requires (1 point) the traveling of a wave for a long distance. constructive interference between two waves of slightly different frequencies. that refraction and diffraction occur at the same time in a wave. interference between incoming and reflected waves. Weegy: These two situations both apply to transverse waves, where the displacement is perpendicular to the direction of travel. For longitudinal waves, where the displacement is parallel to the direction of travel (e.g. [ sound waves) it is necessary to adopt an arbitrary convention as to which direction is plotted above the line and which below. The amplitude of a single particle is also the amplitude of the wave. One thing to point out is that the only thing that actually moves in a wave is the energy. The actual particles, after the wave has gone by, have no overall displacement from their original position. ] (More)
