2. Everyday examples of waves
A wave can be described as a regular disturbance that transfers energy.
This uniform pattern of movement allows the wave to transfer energy in various forms at a particular frequency.
To transfer this energy the particles vibrate or the bulk material oscillates in some way, but the particles or material stay in the same place - only the energy 'moves'!
