There are many varying stories on the origin of the wave - when sports fans stand and raise their arms, section by section, creating a wave like crest throughout an arena.
Competing claims for inventing the wave come from hockey, baseball, American football, and soccer, and from Canada, the US, and Mexico. The evidence does seem to indicate that the wave traveled primarily north to south, from its introduction at a 1980 hockey game in Edmonton, a cameo appearance at a baseball game in Oakland, a few years at Seattle football games, an Olympic appearance at Stanford University, and finally its big breakthrough at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, from which it emerged with global fame as the Mexican Wave.
According to professional cheerleader Krazy George Henderson, the first wave was created by accident at anhockey game. Different sections of the arena standing and cheering at different times was already somewhat common. Krazy George was pointing to different sections of the arena, which generally resulted in that section's fans jumping to their feet and shouting. A delayed reaction by one section one night was then followed by the next section jumping a few seconds later, initiating an impromptu wave. George refined the routine through season, and then took it to other games and stadiums, including a nationally televised playoff game in Oakland between the A's and the on October 15, 1981.
Two weeks later Seattle fans began using the wave, first at a University of Washington football game, and then at the Seahawks' NFL games. The wave was introduced to soccer fans at a 1984 Olympic soccer match between Brazil and Italy at Stanford Stadium, before achieving global fame at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.
History is fuzzy about that but according to answers.com, the first recorded wave was at a NHL game in 1980.
Either. It simply supports the home team.
mexicans doing the wave
The New Wave style of expression originated in Europe.
It first started in the 1986 World cup in Mexico. Hence the Mexican wave
it is from the Japanese language meaning 'harbour wave'
Firstly the inital P wave (primary wave) hits, then the S wave (secondary wave) hits and lastly the surface/love wave will hit xx
The number of cycles a wave is doing per second.
a source of energy for it to originate from, and a medium in which to move through
i think it is the wind that has been doing it
A shock wave is generally thought of as a compression wave that radiates from a mechanical event, like an explosion. Same thing with earthquakes. There is a compression wave in all these events. We can see a compression wave originate from something breaking the sound barrier, and that's another example. Something moving faster than sound generates the shock wave on a continuous basis, and we hear the boom! as the wave reaches us. The same thing applies in sonar when the transmitter emits a "ping" into the water. The transducer vibrates, and a compression wave is generated. Where a source of mechanical energy causes movement, a compression wave can originate and radiate. It could be argued that compression waves originate from a source of sound. That's because sound is a mechanical wave, as it is mechanical energy. Certainly it generally isn't thought of as having the power of an explosion, though. In addition to the compression waves of sound, there are the "opposite" waves. These are areas where the air is rarefied or "uncompressed" between the areas where the compression waves are traveling. A shock wave is usually the term we apply to the leading edge of a compression wave from some mechanical event. It is carrying mechanical energy outward from the cause.
No. A seismic wave can simply be though of as an "earthquake wave". Seismic waves originate in the tectonic plates of the Earth as they crash against each other, causing a vibration.
That will be wavelength you can figure out the distance by doing this wavelength (m) ---------------------- Wave period (s)=wave speed (m/s)
Wave it by doing the beach wave style :) get it styled at the salon and then while they r doing it see how it's being done so u could do it for yourself!!
In science we are doing a packet and one of the questions is:What type of wave interaction is described? Explain
Tsunamis originated from the Japanese culture. "Tsu" harbor and "nami" wave.
No, a tsunami is a wave that does not originate from wind. A tsunami is usually caused by an underwater earthquake or landslide.

As waves approach the shore the wavelength and speed decreases. As they decrease, the wave grows larger. The wave then crashes onto shore because it becomes too steep for the bottom of the wave to carry.
One can learn information about this year's Sound Wave event from: Wikipedia, Sound Wave, Festival, Faster Louder, The Music, Connected Events, Sound Wave Croatia, Sound Wave AZ, The Age, to name a few.
A very powerful shock wave that can destroy a nebulae altogether.
The P-wave corresponds to atrial depolarisation.The QRS complex corresponds to ventricular depolarisation.The T-wave corresponds to ventricular repolarisation.
what is the events, the problems and the soultions in the book, The Big Wave by pearl s. buck
as i hear it started in a corner of a baseball stadium and every one started to do it. but the wave it self is just a way tocheer on your team. most of the time you start siting in a seat and stand up when the "wave" gets to you. for the name itself it looks like a wave of people ----
