### What are the properties of a longitudinal and transverse waves?

speed,frequency, wavelength and amplitude

### Which properties does a longitudinal wave lack?

Longitudinal waves have all the same properties as transverse waves: speed, frequency, wavelength, and amplitude

### Which of these waves would you expect to have the greatest wave speed?

a wave with long wavelength and high frequency.

### What type of waves do particalles in a medium move perpendicular to the direction that the waves move?

Waves that oscillate perpendicularly to their propagation are called transverse waves.

### What do transverse waves and longitudnal waves have in common?

Transverse waves and longitudinal waves are both types of mechanical waves. They both transfer energy through a medium, but their motion and displacement of particles in the medium differ. In transverse waves, particles move perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation, while in longitudinal waves, particles move parallel to the direction of wave propagation.

### Which types of waves carries the most energy?

high frequency, short wavelength :)

### How are x-rays and earthquake waves similar?

They are both transverse waves, albeit having different wavelength and frequency. I think that velocity of the waves will also be different as x-rays travel at the speed of light.

### How are the wavelength and speed related to waves?

Speed c=wavelength/t = wf.

### When working with waves frequency x equals speed?

When working with waves ... or even just talking about them ... (frequency) = (speed) divided by (wavelength) (wavelength) = (speed) divided by (frequency) (frequency) times (wavelength) = (speed)

### Properties of Waves?

The main characteristics of waves are: 1. Amplitude or height of the wave. 2. Wavelength, or the distance between crests. 3. Period or the length of time for a wave to pass a point. 4. Frequency or the number of complete waves passing a point. 5. Speed or the horizontal speed of the wave as it grows.

### How does a waves speed relate to its wavelength and frequency?

The product of (wavelength) times (frequency) is the speed.

### How would the wavelength of waves traveling with the same speed change if the frequency of the waves increase?

The speed of a wave is equal to the wavelength divided by the frequency (speed = wavelength/frequency). So if the frequency of the wave increases, the wavelength will decrease.
