Longitudinal waves vibrate in the direction of the wave travel and transverse waves vibrate perpendicular (transverse) to the direction of wave travel.
mechanical waves can be both transverse and longitudinal, but all electromagnetic waves are transverse.
No, electromagnetic waves are not longitudinal waves. They are transverse waves.
Particles in transverse waves vibrate perpendicular to the direction of the wave and those in longitudinal waves vibrate parallel to the direction of the wave. Light waves are transverse waves while sound waves are longitudinal. In general waves are quaternion and contain a real /longitudinal wave and a vector/transverse wave.
EM waves are both Transverse and Longitudinal.
First and foremost is that rigidity is essential for transverse waves to travel through the medium. But in longitudinal it is not essential. So transverse waves cannot be propagated through gasses. Second, the vibrations of particles of the medium will be perpendicular to the direction of motion of the wave. Whereas in the case of longitudinal waves, the vibrations are in the same direction as that of the wave propagation.
Transverse. Radio waves are electromagnetic waves, which are transverse.
P-waves are longitudinal and S-waves are transverse waves.
Longitudinal: Sound Transverse: Light
Ultraviolet waves are transverse.
s waves are transverse
transverse waves are mechanical!
heat waves are transverse
Sonic waves are transverse
Longitudinal waves are scalar waves with the divergence of the vector vibration, Del.dEv/cdt . Transverse waves are vector waves with the curl of the vector vibration, DelxdEv/cdt
I could say longitudinal
Sound waves must travel through a medium, light does not require a medium. Sound waves are longitudinal waves, light are transverse waves.
Radio waves are transverse waves.
Transverse waves vibrate particles perpendicular to the wave direction and Longitudinal waves vibrate particles parallel to the wave direction
Light waves are transverse.Sound waves may be transverse or longitudinal. Sound in gases can only be longitudinal.
Both transverse and longitudinal waves show interference and diffraction effects.
Both transverse and longitudinal waves are mathematically described by the wave equation. They both have periods, frequencies, wavelengths, amplitudes, phases, and velocities.
A rarefaction can be in a longitudinal and transverse wave. (Longitudinal and transverse wave are both Mechanical waves)
They can be either longitudinal or transverse. In gases, such as air, and in liquids, only longitudinal waves are possible. In solids, there can be both longitudinal and transverse waves.
longitudinal waves vibrate in the direction of propagation; transverse waves vibrate perpendicular to the direction of propagation.
