Lognitudinal waves and Transverse waves are types of?
 A Mechanical waves B Non-Mechanical waves C Both of above D None of Above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Mechanical waves can be produced only in media which possess elasticity and inertia. There are three types of mechanical waves: transverse waves, longitudinal waves, and surface waves. Some of the most common examples of mechanical waves are water waves, sound waves, and seismic waves.

Detailed explanation-2: -Mechanical Waves are waves which propagate through a material medium (solid, liquid, or gas) at a wave speed which depends on the elastic and inertial properties of that medium. There are two basic types of wave motion for mechanical waves: longitudinal waves and transverse waves.

Detailed explanation-3: -There are three general types of mechanical waves: – Transverse – particle motion is perpendicular to wave motion. – Longitudinal – particle motion is in the same direction as wave motion. – Combined – sea waves.

Detailed explanation-4: -Longitudinal waves, transverse waves, and surface waves are the three types of mechanical waves. The medium moves perpendicular to the wave direction in transverse waves and parallel to the wave direction in longitudinal waves.

Detailed explanation-5: -Longitudunal (AKA Compression): medium pieces move parallel to wave motion or to extent of wave. Transverse: medium pieces move perpendicular to wave motion. Circular Transverse: medium pieces move in circles around wave motion direction. More items
