S-waves only pass through solids.
Seismic waves are the earths crust vibrating. there are two types of waves P-waves and S-waves (Primary and Secondary) Primary waves travel faster than s waves and can travel through solid and liquid, S-waves can only travel through solids
yes they can but they travel through air faster
Seismic waves can be separated into basically two different types; S-waves and P-waves. P-waves are able to travel through liquid and solid, but S-waves can not travel through a liquid, they can only travel through a solid. When scientist "shoot" P and S-waves at the outer core, they detect the P-waves coming out the other side, but not the S-waves.
P waves can travel through solid and liquid material such as the mantle, but when they hit the earths core, they slow down greatly S waves can travel through the mantle as well, but stp abruptly when they reach the solid core
s-waves travel through solids only
S-waves A transverse wave can travel through a solid, but not through a liquid.
Seismic waves consist ofP waves which travel through the Earth fast. They compress the medium they travel through;S waves which also travel through the Earth, shearing the solid Earth as they go. S waves do not travel through liquid;Surface waves which can cause the Earth to undulate like water waves or surface waves that cause the Earth to shear.
Because s-waves from earthquakes can travel through the mantle rock. S-waves (i.e. shear waves) cannot travel through liquids or gasses.
S waves trabel through solids and p waves travel through liquids and solids.
While S waves (shear waves) can travel through earth's solid inner core, they cannot travel through earth's liquid outer core, which surrounds the inner core.So, unless the S waves originated inside the inner core (which seems unlikely) there are no S waves traveling through earth's inner core.
p waves travel through solids and s waves travel through liquids
s-waves do not travel through Earth's mantle
P waves travel through solids, liquids, and gases. S waves travel through solids only.
P waves can travel through all types of matter. S waves can only travel through solids.
S-waves cannot travel through liquids, but they can travel through solids and gases. P-waves can travel through solids, liquids and gases. Hope this helped! :D
Only P-waves are able to travel through liquids. S-waves are transverse or shear waves and so can not travel through liquids.
P-waves are longitudinal, S-waves are transverse. P-waves travel faster than S-waves. P-waves can travel through Solids and Liquids whereas S-waves can only travel through solids.
Seismic waves contain both P waves and S waves. P waves can travel through the Earth including the inner core while S waves could not pass through the core.
Shear Waves (S Waves) cannot travel through liquid
S-waves can not travel through liquids. By Hollie
PS and L waves are abbreviated for Primary, Secondary and Love Waves.Primary Waves and Secondary Waves are Body Waves, which means they travel through the body of the Earth. Love waves are Surface Waves, which means they travel on the surface of the Earth.P Waves are the fastest and first to be recorded because they can travel through both liquid and solid rock. S Waves are slower than P and are the next to be recorded as they can only travel through solid rock.L Waves have to further to go than P an S waves and arrive after them, because they have to go around the earth, not through it. However, they are more dangerous than P and S Waves because their effect on the surface is more severe.
No. S-waves (also known as secondary waves) can only travel through solids, not liquids or gases unlike the P-waves.
The fast is primary wave which travels through liguid, solid and gas. This how Geologist know the outer core is liquid. Secondary waves travel through only solid. The primary wave are the first to reach the seismograph.
