Physics - Oscillations and waves Calculate Speed of Sound
Physics is the field of natural science, the science of the simplest and at the same time the most general laws of nature, about matter, its structure, and movement. The laws of physics are the foundation of all-natural science. Our calculator will help you solve physics problems.
Oscillations and waves
Oscillations are called processes in which the movements or states of a system are regularly repeated in time. The oscillation period T is the period of time through which the state of the system takes the same values: u (t + T) = u (t). A wave is a disturbance (a change in the state of the medium) that propagates in space and carries energy without transferring matter. The most common are elastic waves, waves on the surface of a liquid, and electromagnetic waves. Elastic waves can only be excited in a medium (gas, liquid, solid), and electromagnetic waves propagate in a vacuum.
