What are standard scientific units of measurement for each of the following? (Give the term and the units in your answer so I can be sure which goes with which!)
term for the substance a wave travels through
term for distance traveled divided by time taken
term for how many cycles are completed in a given time
term for the concept that waves "spread out" when they go through a narrow opening
term for the concept that when waves meet, they "add up"
term for the size of a wave (not how long it is but how 'big' it is)
term for the time to complete one cycle
term for the concept that waves "bounce" off of the boundary where two media meet
term for the ratio of the speed of light in a vacuum to the speed of light in another substance
term for the concept that waves "bend" when they move from one medium to another
term for a particle of light
term for the concept that heated objects give off a distinct spectrum of electromagnetic radiation that depends on the temperature of the object
term for the experiment that shows that light can knock electrons off of metals
