Hey all! Does vibration create a wave or a disturbance? If I have something like a particle or something more massive like a molecule, and it vibrates, does it create a wave function? If you have a stadium of people (yea I know, silly example) and one line of people start a wave or rather just move up and down ( you know like at sporting events you all start a wave of people), and this disturbance continues transverse to the direction of motion, yet nothing is moving except the people going up and down in their chair, and it all started from them moving up and down. So, if I have a field, and at one end a particle vibrates, does that vibration create a disturbance in the field proportional to the frequency that the first particle vibrated at, ultimately affecting a particle at the other end of the field, or someplace within the field? ??
