Longitudinal waves, also known as "I waves", are wave/s in which the
displacement of the medium is in the same direction as, or the opposite direction
to, the ...
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
As you can see from the diagram, the particle density varies in a perfect wave
shape. This is how we know that longitudinal 'waves' are really waves.
Compressional waves are waves that move along the direction of propagation in
a back and forth motion. Common examples of compressional waves include ...
Time-saving video on longitudinal waves. Longitudinal waves are waves which
move particles in the direction of the wave motion. Short explanation of ...

Feb 7, 2012 ... A longitudinal or compression wave is created by a disturbance that is along the
direction the wave will travel. A transverse wave is created by ...
A transverse wave is one in which the displacement of the particles is at 90<sup>o</sup> to
the ... We can show the features of a transverse wave in the diagram below:.
In a longitudinal wave, the motion of the medium is parallel to the direction of the
wave . This means that the particles move left and right which in turn makes the ...
