Title: Wave Behavior in Motion
Student: Ryan Shea
School: Huntingtown High School, Huntingtown, MD
Teacher: Jonathan Everett

In this picture, the wave, created by a thrust of my hand, is traveling on blue-dyed water. The energy carried by the wave is clearly evident. The wave is transverse, meaning that its displacement is perpendicular to the direction it?s moving, thus creating the up-and-down look.
