there is several ways that waves can move. waves can move by wind. the energy passes to the water causing waves.

The better answer.

Waves move because they are a movement of energy through a medium. The wave entails two parts, which are the crest and trough. The wavelength is the distance between two crest. The wave height is the distance between a crest and trough.

Waves that move perpendicular to the motion of the wave are called transverse waves, while those that move parallel to to direction of the wave, such as sound waves, are called longitudinal, or compression waves


Mechanical waves are produced when a source of energy causes a medium to vibrate. Mechanical waves are classified by how they move. There are two types of mechanical waves: transverse waves and longitudinal waves. Transverse means "across." Longitude means "horizontal". Transverse waves move the particles of the medium perpendicular to the direction in which the waves are traveling. Longitudinal waves move the particles of the medium parallel to the direction in which the waves are traveling. by how they move

No, they can be caused by standing waves, but they move


Secondary waves, or S waves, vibrate side to side as well as up and down. Unlike P waves, S waves can not move through liquids.


Waves that move back and forth are called longitudinal waves. An example are sound waves.
