a wave in which the direction of displacement is perpendicular to the direction of propagation, as a surface wave of water.
a wave in which the direction of displacement is perpendicular to the direction of
propagation, as a surface wave of water. Expand. Compare longitudinal wave.
For transverse waves the displacement of the medium is perpendicular to the
direction of propagation of the wave. A ripple on a pond and a wave on a string
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.
Define transverse wave: a wave in which the vibrating element moves in a
direction perpendicular to the direction of advance of the wave—usage,
(General Physics) a wave, such as an electromagnetic wave, that is propagated
in a direction perpendicular to the direction of displacement of the transmitting ...
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...
Transverse Waves Definition. Back to Top. A wave motion, in which the particles
of the medium oscillate about their mean positions at right angles to the ...
