Oscillation is a repetitive action, usually over a period of time, that has equal movement. For example, an oscillating fan, turn to the left so many degrees, then to the right the equal distance, then repeats its movement over the same period of time.
Oscillation means to go back and forth, although it can have many specific meanings. A pendulum oscillates. Alternating Current (AC) power reverses direction and therefore oscillates.
