Waves

Transverse vs. Longitudinal Video

Transverse Wave

Longitudinal Wave

Surface Wave

There are different categories of waves like...

Transverse waves move perpendicular to the direction that the waves moves.EX: Wave on a string, ripple on a pond caused by a thrown rock

WAVESA disturbance that travels through a medium is a waveWaves have multiple properties:- Amplitude: max amount of displacement of a particle from rest-Wavelength: length of a completed wave cycle-Crest:point where wave exhibits max amount of positive displacement-Trough: point where wave exhibits max amount of negative displacement

Longitudinal waves move parallel to the direction that the wave movesEX: Wave in a slinky, sound waves

Surface waves move in a circular motion. -neither longitudinal nor transverse-only particles at surface of the medium move in circular motion as opposed to transverse and longitudinal which all particles moveEX: ocean wave
