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. ]

For refraction to occur in a wave, the wave must
Weegy: Refraction is the bending of a wave when it enters a medium where it's speed is different. 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. User: What is one property of a wave that determines how much it will diffract when it encounters an obstacle? (1 point) speed amplitude polarization wavelength Weegy: wavelength is one property of a wave that determines how much it will diffract when it encounters an obstacle? - (More)
