Why do the particles which the wave travels and the direction the wave travels relate each other?

It depends on whether the wave is a transversal or longitudinal wave. A transversal wave has particles in the medium oscillating in a direction perpendicular to the wave's direction. This is the case in for example water wave; the water moves up and down, but the wave moves forward. A longitudinal wave has the particles moving backwards and forwards in same direction the wave travels. This is the case in ordinary sound waves. You can see (or feel) this yourself when you look at the skin of a subwoofer making sounds (it is clearer when it is producing tones with a low pitch).


What kind of wave travels only through a medium?

Mechanical waves, including sound waves.
