Transverse wave definition, a wave in which the direction of displacement is
perpendicular to the direction of propagation, as a surface wave of water. See
Transverse Waves. For transverse waves the displacement of the medium is
perpendicular to the direction of propagation of the wave. A ripple on a pond and
Define transverse wave: a wave in which the vibrating element moves in a
direction perpendicular to the direction of advance of the wave.
A transverse wave is a wave in which particles of the medium move in a .... the
earth and over its surface by means of both transverse and longitudinal waves.
(General Physics) a wave, such as an electromagnetic wave, that is propagated

What comes to mind when you think of a wave? Chances are your mental image
takes the form of a transverse wave. But, longitudinal waves are just as...
A secondary school revision resource for Edexcel GCSE Science about waves.
A transverse wave is one where the displacement of the medium in which the
wave is travelling is perpendicular to its propagation. A pond ripple is an example
There are two basic types of wave motion for mechanical waves: longitudinal
waves and transverse waves. The animations below demonstrate both types of ...
Waves have moving crests (or peaks) and troughs. A crest ... Crests and troughs
on a transverse wave are shown in Figure 1. ... Definition 1: Crests and troughs.
