### What does a combination of a compression and a rarefraction create?

it creates a cycle

### What would you look for in order to determine whether a wave is longitudinal?

compression and rarefraction

### What are the areas of compression and rarefraction an dwhich type wave do they aply?

LONGITUDINAL wave. Air layers come closer at a particular time at a particular place is known to be compression. At the same place after some time the layers get separated. This is rarefaction. For example, a sound wave.

### What is a series of compression and rarefactions travel through a medium?

a series copression and rarefraction traving through a medium

### What is mean by longitudinal vibration and it's types?

longitudinal vibration is a form of wave pattern which produces alternative compression and rarefraction

### What is the increase in density of a medium due to wave travel called?

The density of a medium directly affects the density of the sound waves. High particle density is called compression while low particle density is called rarefraction.

### A point of highest density in a longitudinal wave?

It's called a compression, and the point of lowest density is called a rarefraction. This logic also applies to transverse waves.

### The spot with the highest crest or compression is produced through what interference?

Crest is the highest point for the Transerve wave. Trough is the lowest point of the Transerve wave. Compression is the part of the longitudinal wave where the particles are croweded. Rarefraction is the part of the longitudinal wave where the particles are spread aprat.

### What is the distances between compression and rarefaction of longitudinal wave?

Compression is the areas where the particles are closer together. Rarefaction is the areas where the particles are stretched apart.

### What does rarefraction mean?

The spreading of molecules of sound. :)
