Waves

Ready to make some waves? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby discuss all types of waves--from the kind that travel through the ocean to the kind that travel through outer space! You'll learn how water, sound, light and even earthquakes travel in waves, and also about the characteristics between them that we can measure and observe. You'll also find out how to determine how much energy each wave carries and how we use time and frequency to measure different types of waves, whether they're electromagnetic or mechanical. All this talk of waves is enough to make someone want to surf and listen to the radio all at the same time!
