# Progress update for February 13th

Looking into how to get a sound waveform out of a song and then translate it to light waveform.

Sound wave:

There are five main characteristics of sound waves: wavelength, amplitudefrequencytime period, and velocity. The wavelength of a sound wave indicates the distance that wave travels before it repeats itself. The wavelength itself is a longitudinal wave that shows the compressions and rarefactions of the sound wave.

Light wave:

Electromagnetic waves are typically described by any of the following three physical properties: frequency (f), wavelength (λ), or intensity (I). Light quanta are typically described by frequency (f), wavelength (λ), or photon energy (E).
