What is one wave?

Frequency, wavelength, amplitude and wave speed. The greater the amplitude of a wave then the more energy it is carrying. The wavelength, λ, of a wave is the distance from any point on one wave to the same point on the next wave along. (The symbol is a Greek letter, 'lambda'.)

What is the definition of a wave in science?

wave. In physics, any regularly recurring event, such as surf coming in toward a beach, that can be thought of as a disturbance moving through a medium. Waves are characterized by wavelength, frequency, and the speed at which they move.

How a wave is different than a pulse?

Both terms describe disturbances in some medium. Wave usually refers to a continuous disturbance. Like if you grab hold of spring and shake it back and forth a lot. Pulse, on the other hand, often refers to some type of one-time disturbance.
