False. Radio waves are electromagnetic vibrations, while sound waves are mechanical vibrations.

Light waves are transverse. Sound waves are longitudinal ones. This is true no matter what grade you're in, and it'll still be true next year.

transverse waves are characterized by crests and troughs.This is False.

Speed = frequency x wavelengthThis is true for all waves, sound waves as well as electromagnetic waves.

No. Those phenomena are characteristic of longitudinal waves, such as for example sound waves.

Sound waves do need a material medium for propagation and hence they are termed as mechanical waves.

ocean waves have to do with water and sound waves have to do with sound

Yes sound does produce waves. These special waves are called sound waves.

higher sound waves are shorter and lower sound waves have longer.

Actually it is true because they have no ears so they move based on sound waves.

Yes. Sound waves are longitudinal waves.

No, soft sound waves have short waves. Loud sound waves are the ones that have tall waves.

It is true. A wave is a disturbance through space or time that carrys energy. For example, lets say sound waves. A sound wave carrys the energy (sound) to you.

When you beat the drum, it produces the sound. The reverse is also true. When sound strike the drum, it vibrates.

Sound waves are described as pressure waves because waves produces pressure by which sound is produces
