Three types of mechanical waves are transverse, longitudinal, & surface waves. Mechanical waves require a material medium to travel.


mechanical waves can be both transverse and longitudinal, but all electromagnetic waves are transverse.


Transverse, parallel, and mechanical waves.



transverse waves are mechanical!


mechanical is the category of waves. there are two categories. (another story) but 2 types of transverse would be sound waves and ocean waves.


Basically they are mechanical and electromagnetic Mechanical can be transverse (waves on the surface of water] or longitudinal[Sound waves] Electromagnetic is transverse by nature


There are only two types of mechanical waves: longitudinal waves, and transverse waves..In a longitudinal wave, the waves themselves oscillate, or vibrate, in the same direction as the wave travel. Longitudinal waves are also called compression waves. Sound and seismic P-waves are examples of mechanical longitudinal waves..In a transverse wave, the waves oscillate perpendicular to the direction of the wave travel. Ocean waves and seismic S-waves are examples of mechanical transverse waves..See the related links for further information about longitudinal and transverse 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


The definition of a mechanical wave is a wave that is able to be transmitted into solids, liquids, and gases. Transverse mechanical waves are able to be transmitted into solids and liquids. An example of transverse waves are the secondary waves of an earthquake.

Some different types of waves are: light, sound, and seismic. Waves can be classified as mechanical or electromagnetic, and transverse or longitudinal. There are many other types of waves depending on what you are talking about, but all waves are classified as two of these.


longitudinal waves and transverse wave


Three examples of mechanical waves are ocean waves, sound waves, and seismic waves. Mechanical waves can also be categorized as surface waves, longitudinal waves, and transverse waves.

Water waves are mechanical, transverse waves


Transverse waves are a type of mechanical wave. A mechanical wave is a wave that needs a medium (type of substance such as gas, liquid or solid) to travel through. Transverse waves move the medium perpendicular to the energy. Transverse waves are like ocean waves. Electromagnetic waves are waves that don't need a medium to travel on. Electromagnetic waves can be transverse or longitudinal. Longitudinal waves are waves that that compress and rarefact or get close together/bunch up and stretch apart.


It is not a synonym, in any case. Mechanical waves can be both longitudinal and transverse. Electromagnetic waves are transverse.
