  WAVE File Format
The WAVE format is sort of a bastardized standard that was concocted by too many "cooks" who didn't properly coordinate the addition of "ingredients" to the "soup".
WAVE data may be stored without compression, in which case the sample points are stored as described in Sample Points and Sample Frames.
Of course, as you've come to expect from the WAVE file format, it duplicates some of the information that can be found in the Cue and Playlist chunks, but fortunately, in a more sensible, consistent, better-documented way.

  Wave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Waves travel and transfer energy from one point to another, with little or no permanent displacement of the particles of the medium (there is little or no associated mass transport); instead there are oscillations around fixed positions.
The amplitude of a wave is the measure of the magnitude of the maximum disturbance in the medium during one wave cycle, and is measured in units depending on the type of wave.
For examples, waves on a string have an amplitude expressed as a distance (meters), sound waves as pressure (pascals) and electromagnetic waves as the amplitude of the electric field (volts/meter).

 The Physics Classroom
In the case of a sound wave moving from the church choir to the pews, the medium through which the sound wave travels is the air in the room.
And in the case of the stadium wave, the medium through which the stadium wave travels is the fans who are in the stadium.
When a wave is present in a medium (that is, when there is a disturbance moving through a medium), the individual particles of the medium are only temporarily displaced from their rest position.

 Wave Equation, Wave Packet Solution
A traveling wave solution to the wave equation may be written in several different ways with different choices of related parameters.
The wave velocity is determined by the properties of the medium and is independent of the other parameters, but it can be determined from measurements of the frequency and wavelength.
In the case of classical waves, either the real or the imaginary part is chosen since the wave must be real, but for application to quantum mechanical wavefunctions such as that for a free particle, the complex form may be retained.

An Alfvén wave in a plasma is a traveling oscillation of the ions and the magnetic field.
The wave propagates in the direction of the magnetic field, although waves exist at oblique incidence and smoothly change into the magnetosonic wave when the propagation is perpendicular to the magnetic field.
The motion of the ions and the perturbation of the magnetic field are in the same direction and transverse to the direction of propagation.

Waves are ultimately a form of solar energy.
As the crest of a wave enters the cavern, it raises the water level quickly, pushing the air above the wave through the hole and spinning the turbine's blades.
There, waves retain nearly all the power they've gathered while crossing the ocean, but the sea bottom is near enough that anchoring wave-power equipment is easier and cheaper than in deeper waters.

One of the most remarkable is a rock formation known as "The Wave", a psychedelic contortion of sandstone rock that lies on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes in the Paria Canyon - Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness Area managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
We note that "The Wave" and the hiking route to it are protected areas and can only be entered with a special permit (just ten are issued for each day).
The area covered by "The Wave" is not large but you should take time to explore the various gullies where this unusual psychedelic phenomenon is most prominent.

 Elliott Wave Analysis. S&P 500 Cash Index
The most reliable target for the end of the wave.E is determined by the 0.618-relationship between the lengths of the waves.E and.D.
Levels of potential support are expected at the 989 (the 0.618-retracement of the last phase of the wave v) and 974 (the level corresponding to the 38.2 %-retracement of the wave v, which also lies close enough to the beginning of the third.A-.B-.C - pattern) cash levels.
However, it should be noted here that, while not expected, the Corrective wave, which is considered to be the wave 5 v, could turn out to be a wave of a lesser degree.

 WAVE File Format
WAVE can also contain any other chunk type allowed by RIFF, including LIST chunks, which are used to contain optional kinds of data such as the copyright date, author's name, etc. Chunks can appear in any order.
For this reason, and also possibly because a simpler (or inaccurate?) description of the WAVE format was promulgated before the Win32 API was released, a lot of older programs read and write a subset of the WAVE format, which I refer to as the "canonical" WAVE format.
The simplest way to write data into WAVE files produced by your own programs is to use the canonical format.

Mechanical Waves are waves which propagate through a material medium (solid, liquid, or gas) at a wave speed which depends on the elastic and inertial properties of that medium.
In a longitudinal wave the particle displacement is parallel to the direction of wave propagation.
