What types of waves are not mechanical?

An electromagnetic wave is not a mechanical wave.

What kind of wave is an mechanical wave?

A mechanical wave requires a medium to transfer the energy it carries, unlike EMR waves. There are several types of mechanical waves, most of them being found in an earthquake. Mechanical waves are all longitudinal waves.

What are all mechanical waves?

There are two types of waves, mechanical and non-mechanical waves. A mechanical wave needs some sort of medium, like an earthquake to move the water.

What are three types of a mechanical wave?

There are three general types of mechanical waves: โ€“ Transverse โ€“ particle motion is perpendicular to wave motion. โ€“ Longitudinal โ€“ particle motion is in the same direction as wave motion. โ€“ Combined โ€“ sea waves.

Is an electromagnetic wave a mechanical wave?

No. They are two different types of waves. Mechanical waves require a medium, such as air, to travel through. Electromagnetic waves do not need a medium to travel through.

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.

Is an earthquake wave a mechanical wave?

Yes, earthquake or seismic waves are mechanical waves.

What is non mechanical wave?

Non mechanical waves are Eletro magnetic waves. We can devide 2 waves. 1 is mechanical waves & 2 is electromagnetic waves. For example Sound is a mechanical wave & Light is an electromagnetic wave.

What are the 2 types of wave?

Basically they are mechanical and electromagnetic Mechanical can be transverse (waves on the surface of water] or longitudinal[Sound waves] Electromagnetic is transverse by nature

HOW are EM wave different from mechanical wave?

Mechanical waves require a medium while Electromagnetic waves does not.

What are 2 types of mechanical waves and how are they classified?

Mechanical waves are classified by how they move. 2 types of mechanical waves are transverse waves and longitudinal waves.

What kind of wave is a water wave?

Water waves are mechanical, transverse waves
