Mechanical waves are classified by how they move. 2 types of mechanical waves are transverse waves and longitudinal waves.

A mechanical wave is classified according to how they move.

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
