Transverse waves have crests and troughs. Longitudinal waves have compressions and rarefactions.
As sound is an example of a longitudinal wave, sound has a series of compressions and rarefactions.To explain a bit more, compressions are the squeezes of the wave while rarefactions are the stretches of the wave.
The direction that compressions and rarefactions travel in a longitudinal wave is the same direction. They travel in any direction side-by-side.
The part of the ear where sound wave compressions and rarefactions cause the eardrum to vibrate is the middle ear.
because the particles vibrate back and forth due to which compression and rarefactions are made
Compressions are the parts where the coils are close together
A sound wave is made of a series of compressions and rarefactions.
A sound wave consists of alternating compressions and rarefactions of the air pressure. These variations are at the frequency of the sound wave. A kilohertz sound will have 1000 compressions and 1000 rarefactions per second. In the compression phase, the density of the air will be greater. And the inverse for the rarefactions.
Longitudinal waves such as sound will do this.
With the help of compressions and rarefactions longitudinal waves get propagated.
Compressions and rarefactions of the media in which it is considered. In a vacuum, no media so no sound.
They are the characteristics of waves ( both longitudinal and transverse waves).
The part of the ear where sound wave compressions and rarefactions cause the eardrum to vibrate is the middle ear. The outer ear detects sound waves.
no only, longitudinal waves have compressions and rarefactions. Transverse have crest and troughs.
By motion,in a compressible fluid.For instance a speaker moving in and out in air.
sound is a lonitudnal wave nd travels in the form of compressions and rarefactions..
Compressions their inverse are rarefactions
The vibrations of an audio speaker produce sound waves by compressions and rarefactions in air particles.
No, they are characteristics of compressional waves. Transverse waves have crests & troughs.
They are longitudinal waves. Because they form compressions & rarefactions when they move.
it has a large amplitude
When a sound wave travels through air you get a succession of compressions and rarefactions
