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

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


There are two types of waves, mechanical and non-mechanical waves. A mechanical wave needs some sort of medium, like an earthquake to move the water.


No. The 2 types of mechanical waves are transverse waves & longitudinal waves


A mechanical wave requires a medium to transfer the energy it carries, unlike EMR waves. There are several types of mechanical waves, most of them being found in an earthquake. Mechanical waves are all longitudinal waves.


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.


mechanical and electromagnetic waves.

Transverse waves and Longitudinal waves


An electromagnetic wave is not a mechanical wave.


there are 7 types of waves : 1.sinusoidal waves 2.Plane waves 3.Standing waves 4.Mechanical waves 5.Electromagnetic waves 6.Quantum mechanical waves 7.Gravitational waves


Transverse, parallel, and mechanical waves.


transverse and longitudinal



Sound waves are a type of mechanical waves. Light waves are a type of electromagnetic waves.


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


Quantifying the number of types of waves in fact reduces to the problem of quantifying the number of forces. In fact, mechanical waves are a subset of electromagnetic waves, so there are in fact three other types of waves on top of electromagnetic, for the three other fundamental forces: strong nuclear, weak nuclear, gravitational. Mechanical movement can be caused by any of the four fundamental forces. *Short answer: no. By the way, mechanical waves require a medium, where EM waves do not. They are the only, two, separate types of waves.


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.


answ2, Sound waves are a mechanical vibration transmitted through a medium.


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


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


No. They are two different types of waves. Mechanical waves require a medium, such as air, to travel through. Electromagnetic waves do not need a medium to travel through.


The source of all waves - mechanical or electromagnetic - is something that is vibrating.


Sound waves are mechanical waves and all mechanical waves require a material medium for its propagation unlike electromagnectic waves
