How do waves move?
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.
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…
Waves that move the particles of a medium parallel to the direction in which the waves are traveling are called?
Mechanical waves (e.g. water waves, sound waves, seismic waves) cause objects to move because the waves themselves are mechanical motion of objects. Electromagnetic waves usually do not move large visible objects, but move electrons, atoms, and molecules because they respond to the moving electric field of the wave. This can cause electric currents in the object or heating of the object.
