In physics, a wave is a disturbance or oscillation that travels through space and matter, accompanied by a transfer of energy. Wave motion transfers energy from one point to another, often with no permanent displacement of the particles of the medium—that is, with little or no associated mass transport. They consist, instead, of oscillations or vibrations around almost fixed locations. Waves are described by a wave equation which sets out how the disturbance proceeds over time. The mathematical form of this equation varies depending on the type of wave.

a wave is a disturbance or oscillation that travels through space and matter, accompanied by a transfer of energy. a wave can be 1mechanical wave(where particles of medium oscillate to transport energy) 2.electomagnetic wave( this disturbance is produced by oscillating electric and magnetic field ,and field is generated by accelerating charge) 3.matter wave or de broglie wave(this wave is described for moving microscopic particles)
