the time it takes for any two crest to troughs to pass a stationary point.

No. The crest is the height of the wave. The period is the time it takes for 2 waves to pass one point. ---Only one wave, but two crests, the high and the low one. The number of waves per second is the frequency. Sage.

the time it takes for any two crest to troughs to pass a stationary point.

Destructive interference takes place. Constructive interference occurs when the trough of one wave passes through the crest of another wave

They cancel each other.

Gallows Hill takes place in Pine Crest, Missouri. Pine Crest is a small town.

It takes one year for the earth to make a revolution around the sun.Depending upon your reference point, it takes 27.3 days for the moon to orbit the earth if you use the earth as the reference point. This is called the sidereal month. If you use the sun as the reference point, then it takes 29.5 days for the moon to orbit the earth. This is called the synodic month.

it is called the focus it is the point underground where the mivemenr of an earthquake fist take place

1 wavelength in a transverse wave is equal too the distance between crest and crest or trough and trough

No that is frequency. Wavelength is how long it takes one wave to pass a certain point fully once

The overlap of one wave crest with another can result in interference, which can be constructive (additional) or destructive (reductive) depending on the phase of the wave.
