. What are transverse waves? Give two examples.
Answer:
A wave in which the particles of the medium vibrate up and down at right angles to the direction in which the wave is moving.
Examples:

  • The waves produced by moving one end of a long spring (or slinky) up and down rapidly.
  • Ripples formed on the surface of water in a pond.
