Transverse and Longitudinal Waves
We are currently learning about mechanical waves in science class. Two of these mechanical waves are transverse and longitudinal waves. Within this Tab on the website you will find great videos and animations that show the differences between the two. Be sure to look at the tabs "Transverse Waves" and "Longitudinal Waves" to get more information on both wave types.

Power Point on Mechanical Waves
Mechanical Waves are waves that transfer energy through matter. Some examples of mechanical waves are sound waves, water waves, rope wave, and some earthquake waves.
