That sounds like the description of a transverse wave.
Sound is a kind of wave, i.e. it travels in a waveform. It also has an energy but is negligible.
Sound travels in a mechanical wave.
I suppose that you think to sounds (acoustic waves).
a light wave
All light travels as a wave
water travels as a transverse wave (meaning that the water molecules move in a direction perpendicular to the direction of the path of the wave. the molecules move up and down while the wave moves in horizontal direction).
A mechanical wave travels through matter.A mechanical wave travels through matter.A mechanical wave travels through matter.A mechanical wave travels through matter.
The seismic wave that travels the fastest is known as the P-wave.
sound travels as a sound wave........
The general term for what a wave travels through is a medium, but in the case of earthquakes the wave travels through the ground.
Light travels in self inducing electromagnetic spectrum.
which type of electromagnetic wave travels fastest
The speed of a wave is how far the wave travels in one unit of time.
The material through which a wave travels is called the medium.
The material through which a wave travels is called a medium.
That is a longitudinal wave.
Sound travels as a wave.
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).
Mechanical waves, including sound waves.
