A wave must be transverse or longitudinal or both.
A rarefaction can be in a longitudinal and transverse wave. (Longitudinal and transverse wave are both Mechanical waves)
It is a transverse wave
It is a Longitudinal wave.
Earthquakes generate both transverse and longitudinal waves.
Radio wave is not a longitudinal wave it is a transverse wave
Its a transverse wave.
The vibration of the Longitudinal wave is parallel to the wave direction and the vibration is perpendicular to the direction in the transverse wave.
Sound waves are longitudinal.
A longitudinal wave is a "side-on" waveform. A transverse Wave is a "end-on" waveform.
longitudinal are stronger
A sound wave is indeed a longitudinal wave as opposed to a transverse wave
No, sound is a longitudinal wave
They travel as longitudinal waves.
Ultrasound waves are longitudinal.
It is not a synonym, in any case. Mechanical waves can be both longitudinal and transverse. Electromagnetic waves are transverse.
Light is transverse in nature.
Longitudinal waves vibrate in the direction of the wave travel and transverse waves vibrate perpendicular (transverse) to the direction of wave travel.
Particles in transverse waves vibrate perpendicular to the direction of the wave and those in longitudinal waves vibrate parallel to the direction of the wave. Light waves are transverse waves while sound waves are longitudinal. In general waves are quaternion and contain a real /longitudinal wave and a vector/transverse wave.
The displacement of the particles in the transverse wave is perpendicular to the direction of flow of the wave, while that of the longitudinal wave is parallel to the direction of travel.
In a longitudinal wave, the motion of the medium is parallel to the direction of the wave. With a transverse wave the motion of the medium is a right angles to the wave's direction.
No, sound waves are longitudinal
A combination of a transverse and a longitudinal wave.
Transverse. The wave raises and falls as the wave travels forward.
Longitudinal (also called compression) wave
