Is transverse nature of light waves is verified by refraction or not?
What kind of waves are not transverse waves?
Waves are often classified as transverse or longitudinal. The sideways vibrations of a string and the surface waves on water are a good examples of transverse waves. Sound waves in fluids (e.g. sound in air, sound traveling under water) are examples of longitudinal waves. In solids, you can have both transverse and longitudinal waves.

3 types of mechanical 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.
