Waves are everywhere sound, water and even stadium waves. My favorite type of wave however is a transverse wave. These waves are very interesting. In transverse waves the displacement of the medium is perpendicular. Perpendicular waves intersect and create a right angle. An example of a transverse wave is a ripple in a pond. Transverse waves can occur through a liquid on a string an even throughout a solid. Another type of transverse wave is light! Light contains transverse waves where the electromagnetic vibrations are at 90Âº to the direction of travel. The pace of a wave can be determined using its wavelength and frequency. The frequency can be found in many wave stay tuned for my next blog post to learn more about frequency!
