Do transverse waves have compressions and rarefactions?

Transverse waves have crests and troughs. Longitudinal waves have compressions and rarefactions.

A sound wave is made of a series of compressions and what?

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.


In what direction do compressions and rarefactions travel in a longitudinal 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?

The part of the ear where sound wave compressions and rarefactions cause the eardrum to vibrate is the middle ear.


Why do compressions and rarefactions occur alternatively?

because the particles vibrate back and forth due to which compression and rarefactions are made


Using a spring as an example explain the compressions and rarefactions of a wave?

Compressions are the parts where the coils are close together


A sound wave is made of a series of compressions and what else?

A sound wave is made of a series of compressions and rarefactions.


What is compression in sound?

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.


In a longitudinal wave the compressions and rarefactions travel in which direction?

same direction


What type of wave travels through compressions and rarefactions?

Longitudinal waves such as sound will do this.


How does a longitudinal wave travel?

With the help of compressions and rarefactions longitudinal waves get propagated.


What is isound?

Compressions and rarefactions of the media in which it is considered. In a vacuum, no media so no sound.


Compressions and rarefactions are kinds of?

They are the characteristics of waves ( both longitudinal and transverse waves).


What is the part of the ear where sound wave compressions and rarefactions cause the eardrum to vibrate?

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.


Do transverse waves and longitudinal waves both have compressions and rarefractions?

no only, longitudinal waves have compressions and rarefactions. Transverse have crest and troughs.


How are compressions and rarefactions produced?

By motion,in a compressible fluid.For instance a speaker moving in and out in air.


How does sound travel through?

sound is a lonitudnal wave nd travels in the form of compressions and rarefactions..


What are the names for the bunching up of air that carries though a sound wave?

Compressions their inverse are rarefactions


How do the vibrations of an audio speaker produce sound waves?

The vibrations of an audio speaker produce sound waves by compressions and rarefactions in air particles.

middle ear


Are compressions and rarefactions characteristics of transverse waves?

No, they are characteristics of compressional waves. Transverse waves have crests & troughs.


Are the waves formed by sound transverse waves?

They are longitudinal waves. Because they form compressions & rarefactions when they move.


Suppose a longitudinal wave has crowded compressions and loose rarefactions does it have a large or a small amplitude?

it has a large amplitude


What is a real life example of rarefaction?
