# What is the distance from a crest to a crest called?

## What is the distance from a crest to a crest called?

wavelength

The wavelength can be measured as the distance from crest to crest or from trough to trough.

**What is the vertical distance between a trough and a crest quizlet?**

The vertical distance between trough and crest is called the wave height.

### What is the vertical distance called?

altitude

altitude: “the vertical distance of a level, a point or an object considered as a point, measured from the mean sea level (MSL);”

**What is the half distance between crest and trough?**

Unlock Between two crests, there is a trough exactly in the middle of the two crests. Therefore, The distance between a crest and next trough is the half of the distance between two crests. So the distance between crest and next trough is wavelength/2.

## What is wave height called?

crest

The highest part of the wave is called the crest. The lowest part is called the trough. The wave height is the overall vertical change in height between the crest and the trough and distance between two successive crests (or troughs) is the length of the wave or wavelength.

**Where does an internal wave occur quizlet?**

An internal wave might form: -at the boundary between the atmosphere and the ocean. -at the boundary between the ocean and the seafloor.

### What is the time between two wave crests called quizlet?

The distance between two consecutive crests or consecutive troughs (or compressions/rarefactions in a longitudinal waves) is called the wavelength of a wave. It is denoted by the Greek alphabet λ (Lambda).

**What is the distance between two troughs?**

The horizontal distance between two adjacent crests or troughs is known as the wavelength.

## How do you find vertical height difference?

When hand calculating the vertical distance between points, this difference needs to be taken into consideration. Because the total station gives a true slope distance, the vertical difference is simply V = s * sin α (see figure below).

**What is the distance from one trough to the other trough?**

Wavelength

7- The distance from one trough to another trough is called a Wavelength .
