What is amplitude?
the maximum displacement from the midpoint between the crest and trough
the top of the wave
the horizontal distance the waves travels

What is the angle of incidence equal to when light is reflected?
an acute angle
the angle of reflection

Why does the light from a flashlight appear brighter when you shine the light close to the object
than when you are far away?
because more light is absorbed by the air
because less light is absorbed by the air
because the light waves become refracted
because the light waves appear at their normal line
Which of the following wave characteristics allows us to see objects?
