“YuGiOh TCG: diffusion wave-motion, ultra rare, RDS-ENSE1”
“The XJ120, introduced in 1948, brilliantly emulated the graceful wave-motion of the leaping Panthera onca in the forests of the Amazon.”
“In a regular wave-motion the bats dodge round street lamps planted with regular lights.”
“At depths of a hundred feet or over, wave-motion is rarely or never felt: but the rocking of that bathyscaphe was unmistakable, though very gentle indeed.”
“Light has been proved to be due to the undulatory wave-motions of the Aether, and in order to account for the transmission of the wave-motion, it is essential that the Aether should possess the property of elasticity.”
“A good illustration of the transmission of wave-motion may be shown with a number of ivory bagatelle or billiard balls.”
“A most important factor in determining the propagation of any wave-motion, through a gas or solid, is the relationship of the elasticity of the gas or solid to its density.”
“Light and Heat have been proved to be due to the periodic wave-motion of this universal”
“Suffice to say, that the velocity of any wave-motion is determined by the relation of the elasticity to the density.”
“For example, sound, which is a wave-motion of the air, can not only be transmitted through gaseous bodies as air, but also through liquids and solids.”
