can mechanical waves be both transverse and longitudinal?

mechanical waves can be both transverse and longitudinal, but all electromagnetic waves are transverse.


What types of waves are sound?

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


Are there other waves besides electromagnetic and mechanical?

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.


Does the Doppler effect occur for only some types of waves or all types of waves?

All types of waves.
