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.


What are some examples of mechanical waves?

Mechanical waves are waves that need a medium to go through. Some examples are ocean waves, seismic waves, and sound waves. Also when a slinky moves back and forth or at right angles it is like a wave.
