# Wave Equation

Particles and waves need a set of rules that govern the interaction of energy within the aether. The proposed rules are:

1. Energy waves travel throughout the aether at a defined wave speed and wavelength as wavelets to form a wavefront according to Hyugen’s principle. Amplitude is reduced at the square of distance from the source and experiences constructive and destructive wave interference.
2. Aether granules are the medium that can respond to a wave such that it can pass its inertia and momentum to the next granule. It may have a memory to understand its state, which holds a defined amount of energy.
3. Aether wave centers reflect longitudinal waves and may assemble in formation to create particles via constructive and destructive wave interference.
4. Aether wave centers move to minimize amplitude on the wave, thereby preferring the node position of the wave.
5. Wave energy is proportional to amplitude, wavelength, wave speed and density of a defined volume

According to the fifth rule, the energy is:

The base wave energy equation has two forms: 1) longitudinal and 2) transverse.  The complete derivations are derived in Particle Energy and Interaction paper.  The main equations used in this site are these energy equations:

.

Longitudinal Energy Equation

Transverse Energy  Equation

.And a photon wavelength can be calculated using this equation:

Transverse Wavelength  Equation

Notation and constants for these equations, in addition to other equations used, can be found in the Wave Equation reference page.

## Evidence

Use of these equations and evidence that they work to explain the particles and their interactions are found throughout this site. Some of the many calculations are:
