Longitudinal wave

### What is a wave which causes the particles of the medium to move in the same direction that the wave is traveling?

It's called a longitudinal wave.

### What type of mechanical wave do particles in the medium move perpendicular to the direction of wave motion?

Longitudinal wave

### How do particles in a sound wave move?

The move by expansion and Contraction of the medium by which they are propagated. It is transmitted in air as a longitudinal wave- which means its direction is in line with the movement of the medium.

### What wave particles of the medium move parallel to the direction of the wave?

Longitudinal... No, the particles move transverse to the wave direction. And that they are in 2 perpendicular surfaces, which are intersected in a line, and that line is the base line of the 2 direction waves.

### In which type of waves do the particles in a medium vibrate in the same direction the wave is moving?

Longitudinal. An example of a longitudinal wave is sound. It pushes the medium particles forwards and backwards, parallel to the wave's direction. Transverse waves cause particles to move perpendicular to the wave. (E.g. visible light, x-rays, microwaves)
