If a snapshot of such a transverse wave could be taken so as to freeze the shape
of the rope in time, then it would look like the following diagram.
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:.
Sep 7, 2010 ... The diagram below shows a transverse wave travelling a rope. ( Nov 1996 6(a)
Explain the difference between a transverse and a longitudinal ...
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 ...
Notice in the diagram below how the particle move up and down as the wave
moves ... Longitudinal waves are those which move the particles that make up
Longitudinal Waves including Wavelength, Compression and Rarefaction.
